Slip into Cadaqués on a Monday through Wednesday, when easygoing bartender Greg will set an orange peel ablaze to add some sultry to your drink – matching the aura of this dim and gold-lit tapas bar on Grand St. (near Bedford).
Come for $1 oysters and $4 (surprisingly good) sangria during daily happy hours –including weekends. Come for the delightfully smooth Crèma Catalan, complimentary on Wednesdays. Come for the live jazz on Fridays. But really, come for the tapas. This place delivers on exactly what you’re hoping for every time you enter a tapas place – the ability to flirt with a number of dishes, and indulge in an array of satisfying flavors. Try Garlic Shrimp a la Plancha – where garlic is the ultimate trusty sidekick, not an obnoxious hero – with extra bread to exhaust the sauce, or try the Pan con Tomate to sop up your happy hour indulgence of choice.
They’ll tell you all about how “Cadaqués” is the name of a Spanish Mediterranean town where Dalí had a home–they might even show you some pictures at the bar– but if you order right (go with whatever is recommended) you’ll be too distracted to care after your first bite.
