Cafe Madrid

Octopus in vinaigrette. Paella blooming with clams and shrimp and mussels. Fluffy Serrano ham with sliced lomo pork loin and rich spicy chorizo loaded with paprika. Simple spinach with pine nuts. Crisp-skinned blood sausage. Almond and garlic gazpacho. Café Madrid is Dallas' best tapas restaurant, re-creating this Spanish gustatory ritual with keen exactitude. Savor each of these little plates with a tiny glass of sherry, a stubby tumbler of Rioja or a sip of perfumey Albarino. Your mouth will never run dry.
