Torro Bravo offers a variety of traditional Spanish tapas and variants inspired by the ingredients found in the Pacific Northwest. You can start your night munching on olives and almonds, or perhaps chorizo and manchego cheese on country bread. Move on to some seared scallops and then try the lamb braised with pepper and served with dumplings. Remember that tapas are traditionally small portions, so you will be able to sample many of the restaurant's dishes. Don't forget to order a pitcher of sangria to complete your meal.
Touted as one of the most definitive places in Portland for tapas, Ataula enjoys a celebratory status among its contemporaries. Ataula is located in Northwest Portland on a quiet street, but is far from being just another neighborhood restaurant. Meaning 'to the table' in Catalonian parlance, Ataula's menu is as focused as it is innovative, with tweaks on Spanish classics like patatas bravas among others. There is quite an impressive wine and cocktails list to go with the Spanish nosh here. Come here with friends or family and enjoy a superb Spain-soaked dining experience.
