Just over the hill from downtown Seattle in Madison Valley, this small Spanish taverna has just three little tables and fewer than 10 bar stools, but nobody seems to mind waiting for a spot. Behind the bar, Joseph Jimenez de Jimenez demonstrates the art of tapas. Stuffed peppers, garlic-sauteed chorizo sausage and blue cheese with grilled bread and pears are just a few of his delicacies. Also try the Paella for two, soups and sandwiches.

The charmingly old (but not ancient) building that houses Red House reeks of coziness almost as soon as you enter. A warmly-lit dining room, deep wooden hues on the floor and shelves stacked with wine and beer occupying pretty much every inch of the wall space make for interesting interiors and gives off strangely relaxing vibe. The green tables with blue-cushioned chairs add a contrasting dash of coolness to the warm hues in the room. The serene outdoor patio sees a perennial bustle, and is an excellent choice in summer months. The restaurant is renowned for it's tapas selection, which though not extensive, is varied when it comes to the flavors and combinations. Apart from this, there is also a selection of salads and entrees. The wine selection is astoundingly large, with close to 700 varieties and 20 available by the glass. Equally spectacular is the choice of beer with 500 on offer and seven on tap. Selections from the entire list are available for purchase. Check website for more.
