The first bites at Viaggio Tapas make you want the second, third, fourth and fifth.
This buoyant, bustling spot specializes in the small plates of Spain, those flavor-packed mouthfuls often accompanied by a glass of Sherry. Go with a group and sample as many as you can.
Winners include smoked Basque oysters (which arrive under a smoke-filled dome); patatas bravas with a vivid aioli; Iberico ham, pricey but worth it; plump, grilled Spanish octopus; and the zucchini flatbread with caramelized onions and goat cheese.
The food is savory and fun. So's Viaggio Tapas.
