Spring weather always inspires me to go out for happy hour after work, and my new favorite spot is Taberna del Alabardero, where you can get half-off pitchers of sangria and half-off tapas during their happy hour.
I recently had the tortilla española, a potato and egg omelet, and sautéed artichokes with sherry vinegar and foie gras shavings. Both were delicious, and along with a basket of bread and pitcher of red sangria, were sufficient for my dinner that night.
I'm looking forward to heading back to try deep fried squid with paprika aioli and grilled chorizo.
Happy hour runs from 3-7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
