Dinner with an old friend of his brought us to Jose Andres, Jaleo in Crystal City, VA. Jaleo is the only place it is acceptable to have a shoe on the table!
Excuse this post for lack of detail and information, but we spent little time discussing our food, but mucho time enjoying it and catching up.
Between the four of us, we shared roughly ten small plates. Everything was exquisite and well thought out. Our favorites: the braised lamb (so soft, it just melted in your mouth), and pork belly special. He also loved the pork roll stuffed with ham and cheese. They have an extensive cheese list to pick from, I would also recommend checking out.
Their white sangria is semi-sweet and very refreshing. Perfect for a warm day! Plus they have an interesting collection of desserts.
