Rice and Easy
Two local Spanish restaurants are celebrating aspects of their national cuisine in the coming months.
The time has come for Jaleo's annual paella celebration. To kick it all off, two Spanish chefs will prepare giant paella at the Dupont Circle farmers market this Sunday, Feb. 11. Then, from Feb. 12-25, all three Jaleo locations will serve complimentary samples of paella during happy hour (Monday-Friday from 5-7 at Bethesda and Crystal City, 5-6:30 in Chinatown), which gives yet another reason to enjoy the fruity sangria.
Meanwhile, Taberna del Alabardero, another contender for lip-smacking sangria, will offer a special saffron tasting menu in March. The six-course special ($78) is a tribute to the vibrant yellow spice. It incorporates the theme in texture, appearance and flavor with dishes such as saffron ice cream, saffron pineapple with foie gras and monkfish with saffron veloute.
