When it's date night, one of our favorite places to go is a cozy tapas bar in Santa Monica, Bar Pintxo. We have been going here for years and have seen the menu evolve, but luckily, our favorite dishes are a mainstay. You will find the single most amazing shrimp dish in the city here- Gambas al Ajillo- shrimp cooked with garlic, lemon, and parsley. These shrimpies are out of control crave-able and beyond delicious! We love the tomate y jamon, patatas bravas, bacon wrapped dates, and just found a new tasty morsel- the sobrasada con tronchon- mejozcan sausage and melted
cheese on grilled bread. I should also mention how wonderful the olives are that you get upon being seated. The wine list is great, sangria is strong, and the tapas are the best you'll find in LA- all reasons we find ourselves going back to Bar Pintxo over and over again.
