Hey, It’s a New Spanish Tapas Brunch
Big news on the brunch front: Barraca’s doing it now. They’ve got Spanish deviled-egg flights, Spanish chocolate flatbreads and Spanish meatballs from a grandmother’s old recipe. Believe it or not, it’s a Spanish place. Which means you’re free to take a three-hour nap between plates.
