At this cozy old-world joint named for the Spanish town that hosts the annual Running of the Bulls, you don’t want to miss the bar’s daring rendition of Ernest Hemingway’s Death in the Afternoon cocktail, a mix of champagne and absinthe.
“Pamplona Tapas Bar is a beautiful Spanish-inspired restaurant featuring Spanish cuisine infused with other international flavors, including those from France and North Africa. There’s a cozy patio ideal for a spot of summer socializing and a covered outside space which provides ample shade for diners looking to share delicious small plates. Highlights include spicy garlic shrimp, Catalan spinach with raisins, pine nuts, and green apples, and patatas bravas with jalapeño aioli and mojo pican.
