FOC serves un­con­ven­tional, rein­vented Span­ish tapas. In­stead of the ba­sic chorizo in cider or ba­calao, ex­pect tra­di­tional tapas com­bined with mod­ern cook­ing meth­ods. The An­gus short ribs, served with con­fit pota­toes and por­to­bello mush­rooms, are juicy and suc­cu­lent—a feat achieved by suf­fi­cient mar­bling, which lends a per­fect bal­ance of meat and fat. The fideuà also im­pressed; like a noo­dle-based paella, the thin noo­dles soak up all the rich­ness of the stock, which re­sults in ev­ery mouth­ful be­ing a de­light. The suck­ling pig, how­ever, could have been a bit chunkier and crispier. Servers are very help­ful and will even debone and slice the ribs for you.
