New York City: Tia Pol

Tia Pol is a classic Spanish tapas restaurant. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic dinner. It's noisy and the space is narrow, perhaps even slightly claustrophobic. However, the food is absolutely amazing. Because it was tapas and I was there with two other people, I got to try quite a variety of dishes, among them a couple specials plus the following:

*pinchos morunos lamb skewers - exquisitely seasoned and tender
*chorizo con chocolate palacios chorizo with bittersweet chocolate - chorizo isn't usually my favorite (I've had it on pizza and been unimpressed) but this pairing was excellent
*patatas bravas rough cut potatoes with spicy aioli

I think I could eat here every week!
