Boqueria, web site, 1837 M Street NW, Washington, DC, 202-558-9545 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Google | WaPo | Washingtonian | Don Rockwell]
Right now the best tapas place around. It’s not dramatic or even especially original. But on execution it is very consistent. I recommend the spinach, the lamb skewers, and the quail egg dish, among others. I’ve sampled about fifteen of the small dishes here and none were bad or mediocre. Not cheap, but one of the better places in midtown these days, especially for lunch.
