Maripili Tapas Bar review image

Maripili Tapas Bar

$$$$

Maripili is a Galician-style Tapas spot on Capitol Hill that fully delivers on the concept of good things coming in small packages. Among the stellar bite-sized dishes here are phenomenal ling cod bacalao with nutty manchego gnocchi and peas soaked in a tangy fish broth, tender tortilla española filled with grassy olive oil-poached potatoes, and the star of the show: paella tahdig with smoky chorizo, spice-rubbed prawns, dollops of triple garlic aioli, and a brittle, barely-there socarrat crisp. With a friendly staff, Spanish-forward wine list, and all-around good energy, it's easy to order upwards of a dozen dishes here. It makes Maripili a no-brainer for something like a double date, or even a solo meal at the bar if you wanted a mix-and-match appetizer sampler for dinner.

Terra Plata

Brunch doesn’t get much better than having a Spanish-inspired meal on Terra Plata’s rooftop garden in Capitol Hill.
