Come to this trendy spot for tapas that are meant to be shared. The menu caters to the adventurous connoisseur. Picaro serves both traditional and less run-of-the-mill tapas; some of the more exotic tapas include sauteed blood sausage. Vegetarian tapas include spicy potatoes with sauteed garlic and guindilla mushrooms. The seafood tapas, like the garlic shrimp, are quite flavorful and come highly recommended. Paella with saffron is another house specialty and is served in different combinations of seafood, pork, poultry, and vegetables. Further, the extensive wine list features many affordable bottles of Spanish wine.

With a playful ambiance and a menu full of authentic Spanish food, Coqueta--"flirtation" or "infatuation" in Spanish--is a delight for those seeking a Spanish dining experience. The restaurant offers hot and cold tapas as well as larger, family-style dishes. It also features a full bar with a wide variety of beers, hard ciders and, of course, sangrias to choose from. Be sure not to miss the unique cocktails, such as the Spanish Golden Ale, made of ransom old tom gin, fever tree Mediterranean tonic, amontillado sherry, chocolate bitters, gold and lemon espuma, and the Presidio, made of SF China Beach vodka, yuzu puree, almond, fig, farm egg and peychaud's bitters. The restaurant is often busy, so give yourself plenty of time to dine and enjoy the Coqueta experience. With tasteful wooden flooring, velvety drapes and large windows letting in some natural light, the ambiance is perfect for a romantic evening.
