Good things come in small oxtails.

No, that’s not right. Hold on.

Good oxtail comes in small packages.

Eh, close enough.

Because now you’ve got Tapas by Alex Stratta, a new Spanish small-plates spot from a two-Michelin-starred chef for date-night oxtail, chorizo meatballs and vino, now open at Tivoli Village. (See the menu and the slideshow.)

The place looks like a Spanish hacienda. If you’re not familiar, here’s a primer: dark wood floors, warm yellow walls, wrought-iron light fixtures, brightly colored art and a water-mister-lined patio. Hey, the Spanish take their misting seriously.

Anyway, come here for dinner. Preferably with a comely someone who wouldn’t mind sharing a plate or six with you. The trio of soups (gazpacho, avocado and almond-garlic) on the patio sounds about right. Then again, so does some rabbit-stuffed paella or oxtail on one of the red banquettes inside.

Either way, come thirsty. They’ve got wine, sangria made in-house and sherry cocktails to quench that.

Because, you know, that’s what alcohol does.
