Going for tapas is high on most people's list of things to do in Spain. A 'tapa' is not a type of food, but a way of eating. After the sun has set and work is done, "vamos de tapeo" (let's go for tapas) is the common call to go out and enjoy wine with a delightful variety of small dishes, designed to be shared with friends and loved ones.

Tapas are an unfamiliar portion in the United States. We recommend ordering two or three per person, complimented
with wine.


The quintessential Spanish tortilla of Madrid is unlike the wheat flatbread tortilla of Mexico. The "Tortilla Española" is an omelet of potatoes and onions, and is widely considered to be the the first dish to be missed when a Spaniard travels far from home.


A little-known fact is that Spain is second only to Japan as the largest consumer of seafood per capita. Like all Spaniards, our chef is very passionate about seafood, and takes freshness and quality very seriously. At El Mesón we serve the very best seafood that can be sourced in all North America.


Widely considered the most sublime aged ham in the world. Made from Iberian black swine that run in ancient oak forests, the same that produce the finest cork for wineries around the world. These boars enjoy a diet of rich, nutty acorns, and their meat is masterfully cured in old mines and caves for
two years.
