"Cafe Espanol is an authentic Spanish restaurant, but that's beside the point. More realistically, it's a genuine Village restaurant. Soaking up the Village atmosphere is just the beginning. The Spanish and Mexican cuisine is to be savored and remembered, too. This is lobster season, so don't forget to take advantage of such specials as big-boy single lobsters or the smaller twin lobster
Begin with such appetizers as Mussels
Vinaigrette, Galician Octopus, soul-warming Black Bean Soup
or the Cafe` Espanol salad of green peppers, onion, lettuce, tomato, asparagus, olives and Spanish sausage. Seafood is one of the notable elements of Spanish cuisine. For dessert, sample the cheesecake, flan and ice cream."
