Steps away from both Calypso and Odin (dangerous territory), Despaña serves up Spanish tapas, tortillas, churros, and other prepared goods. You can purchase these items—as well as bocadillos (sandwiches)—from the deli counter, but better to sit down and eat them fresh! Save your grocery money for top-notch imported oils and cheeses. Bonus: While you wait for your Serrano ham to be sliced, the generous staff entertains you with samples.
