Amada review image
7.8

Amada

Amada is a little Spanish tapas bar in Old City from the people behind Distrito and Volver, and it’s been around for a while. It’s still as good as ever, and you should come here for a date or just an after-work Happy Hour drink with some coworkers. There’s usually a wait, especially on the weekend, but it’s worth it for the dishes that range from grilled asparagus with truffles to a whole suckling pig. It’s also easy to spend a pretty absurd amount of money here, but you shouldn’t do that. And you don’t have to. They have lots of small plates that are relatively inexpensive, but all really good, like the beef short rib flatbread and lamb meatballs.
