La Teca’s menu includes traditional Spanish tapas items, paella, tuna tartar (one of my favorite things on the menu), and squid ink pasta, a Catalan delicacy that will turn your mouth black.
Your meal starts with hot-out-of-the-oven bread. This yeasty bread is shaped like a cinnamon roll and topped with Parmesan cheese. It's so good it's worth a second round, even though you have to pay for the second one and you know you shouldn't fill up on bread.
I like ordering a variety of tapas to share. The tapas are truly little plates, and it takes quite a few to fill you up. The only downside is that, unlike a tapas restaurant in Spain, these tapas are on the pricey side. The price of a light tapas meal for two that included one glass of house wine and one Diet Coke was $71.
It's a fun place to go if you want to linger. On weekends, you'll see people in all hours of the day from the moment it opens until closing time.
