There’s a high likelihood of getting lost on the way to this colorful Spanish spot since it’s located on a backstreet along the Miami River you’d never drive down unless you live there. But Jamon Iberico Pata Negra - which is decorated with dramatic paintings of matadors (one of which appears to be fighting a marlin?) - is worth hunting down. Start with the anchovies in vinegar and piquillos peppers filled with codfish. Then move onto one of the rices of the house, like the very good egg-crusted rice with scallops and shrimp. It’s big enough to feed about four people or one-and-a-half hungry dramatic matadors.
