    Finally, Atlanta has a Spanish restaurant that takes the food way beyond the tapas trend. CUERNO opened this year with rich and filling paellas, entrees that manage to nod both to the modern and the traditional cooking of Spain, and wonderful drinks (the white sangria is a must). Try anything from the plancha grill and be rewarded with the intense flavors of garlic, olive oil and fresh seafood cooked perfectly. less...

    You can hit a tapas restaurant practically anywhere in town these days, but none are as true to the Spanish vision as KROG BAR in the parking lot of Stove Works, which Kevin Rathbun opened as an adjunct to his eponymous restaurant. What makes Krog Bar so authentic? For one thing, it’s tiny and there’s a heavy emphasis on wines, just as you’d find in Sevilla, where the most popular tapas bars are so packed they incur involuntary frottage. Also, Rathbun focuses on simple quality — the best Serrano ham, the best cheeses. We should mention that all items are cold and not all are Spanish. The place is too small for any kind of cooking. But if you want a quick transit to southern Spain, this is the place. less...

    Hey, do y’all know where the tapas craze originally came from? They were invented by the Spanish as an inexpensive taste to accompany wine. There are classic, straightforward tapas — a taste of serrano ham, for example — but tapas are often playful experiments, too, and thus also reflect contemporary tastes. The closest we get to real Spanish style is PURA VIDA. Chef Hector Santiago’s menu is pan-Hispanic as well as Spanish, including everything from earthy Peruvian mofongo and Chilean salmon ceviche to Spanish omelets with pearl onion confit and a kinky Mex-style shrimp cocktail with calabaza squash and coconut-ginger habanero sauce.
