New tapas restaurant in Boca


After working for renowned chef José Andrés at The Bazaar in California and Miami Beach, Bryant Fajardo has opened a small-plates venture in the former Slice of Provence with his wife, Nathalia — natives of Bogota, Colombia.

"There aren't enough traditional Spanish restaurants to enjoy a small bite with a glass of beer or wine," Fajardo says.

His stunning presentations — an Andrés legacy — are shocking to find in an ultra-casual nook. Gambas al ajillo entwines butterflied shrimp in garlic brandy. On the modern side, sweet-potato chips accompany yogurt foam and passion-fruit reduction swirled like a spider web ($8), and cotton candy enrobes skewers of foie gras or fruit ($6). The cotton candy mimics the traditional sweet pairing with foie gras, and both dissolve in your mouth.

Yes, sangria is here ($6.50) with a Red Bull version.

Lunch and dinner are served daily, except Sundays, amid a tiny interior with chandeliers crafted from forks and spoons. The main draw is the brick patio with blue and yellow umbrellas matching the chairs and tables.
