No Spain, No Gain

Carolyn Alburger | March 15, 2013 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

A new guard of Spanish-food zealots is shaking up the old tapas-and-sangria routine. Take Oakland’s Duende (and read Josh Sens's review here), where chef Paul Canales (Oliveto) introduces paella’s long-lost cousin, fideua (say it: FID-a-wah). There’s also the soon-to open Coqueta at Pier 5, where celeb chef Michael Chiarello (Bottega) will carry on the springtime tradition of cal├žotada: sweet, fire-licked Spanish leeks with peppery romesco. And the Spanish drink of the moment? Viva gint├│nic!
