This farm to table-like restaurant brings a splash of New York City dining to the more traditional tapas scene in Seville. With a focus on fresh and organic produce, the concept here is slow-cooked food and the menu (written on a chalkboard that is brought around to each table) changes regularly. Wooden tables are juxtaposed against colorful modern lamps and paintings, and the atmosphere is both buzzy, local and dimly lit, so a nice option for a more casual table for two or families who enjoy a low-key but intimate experience. The restaurant’s open kitchen provides an added sense of coziness and authenticity. First timers shouldn’t miss the crispy rice dishes (particularly good is the arroz with calamari). Visit on a Tuesday to enjoy an acoustic concert while you dine.
