Foursquare Tips

  • Tapas weve been loving for years include goat-cheese-stuffed red peppers, crusty bread rubbed with tomatoes & layered with thinly sliced Manchego, a textbook gazpacho, & warm dates wrapped in bacon.
  • 3 star rating in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. "No two visits are ever the same," writes Tom. http://wapo.st/nRBQvw
  • Try the Calamares fritos con alioli
  • Bacon-wrapped dates are amazing. Also try the white wine sangria for something a little different.
  • The best tapas restaurant in D.C.
  • Spanish-born star chef Jos Andrs jump-started his career in his new home city with tapas restaurant Jaleo. Sample a classic paella or a tortilla with sobrasada, onions, and Mahn cheese.
  • Try the Pimientos Del Piquillo Rellenos de Queso - Seared piquillo peppers filled with caa de cabra goat cheese
  • Head's up...the Penn Quarter location of Jos Andrs' Jaleo is due for a facelift in the coming months. So stop in and enjoy the lengthy tapas menu now.
