We come to this Spanish restaurant in North Beach to chill on a colorful parklet and drink one of their refreshing low-proof cocktails or a glass of sangria. But that’s not the only reason we love Red Window. The tapas are fantastic and made with close attention to detail: the fried mushroom skewers are delicate and airy, the patatas bravas are thin, crispy layers of potato drizzled with aioli and a neat dollop of salsa brava, and the shrimp - bathed in a garlicky, bright red oil and served with toasted bread - will probably elicit an audible sigh of delight from everyone at your table. And the crema catalana, with its crackly, caramelized top alone will make you want to contemplate a return visit.
