B44 Catalan Bistro works for a lot of reasons, from a last second date after work to dinner with your team. They have Spanish tapas classics like albondigas and patatas bravas, and the portions are pretty generous for what you pay. We like the gambas al ajillo, but make sure to keep some of the bread from the beginning of the meal to sop up the oil under the shrimp.
