This Jose Andres restaurant is known for more than its tapas and cured meats – Jaleo’s brunch experience is unforgettable. Spanish brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday until 3 pm. For $25, choose two tapas and a brunch entree, plus a glass of Cava. Each additional glass of Cava is just $5! Start your meal with some savory Patatas Bravas and don’t forget to try the poached egg with jamon, Idiazabal cheese, and spinach on brioche bread.

What We Love: The Bloody Gazpacho is a Spanish twist on the classic Bloody Mary.

Mon Ami Gabi

The burgers and fries are perfect for diners looking for a more savory meal. Be sure to sample from the specialty champagne cocktails!
