DC foodies love Jaleo, and for good reason. This upscale Spanish eatery from acclaimed chef Jose Andres seamlessly blends bold, Latin American flavors with a contemporary take on traditional tapas and cuisine. Jaleo is the kind of place that you could spend hours, sampling dishes, enjoying drinks, and relaxing in the vibrant dining area. Bring as many folks as you can so that you can order plenty of dishes. The tapas are best enjoyed in a couple quick bites, and the menu at Jaleo has so much variety. Choose from cured meats and cheeses, simple-but-sublime seafood, vegetarian options, and indulgent fried dishes like patatas bravas and chicken fritters. For a more classic dining experience, order one of the paellas (serves 4-6 and presented tableside) or the Jaleo Classics tasting menu for a full meal of the restaurants best plates.
Jaleo was also quick to respond to the pandemic with takeout and delivery, and ordering is easy right from their website. Treat yourself this fall to a truly exceptional meal!
