I've dined at Jaleo for the past 5 New Year's Eve's dinners, including last week. We took the later seating (8:30) which features the Unlimited Tapas menu ($90), live music, and if you stay til midnight, a cava toast. As you can imagine, dining there...More

The Happy Hour Tapas are an inexpensive (OK I'm a Cheapskate) way to sample the delights of the small plates so popular in Spain. The Beer is less expensive and the variety of Tapas is sure to please every taste.
