Estragon Tapas Bar

With authentic tapas, paellas, and other Madrid-style dishes, chef/owner Julio de Haro and co-owner Lara Egger have built a loyal following for Estragon over the past 15 years, both in the dining room and the kitchen — many of the sweet staffers have been with them from the beginning. Weekend diners should request a table in Bar GoGo, the front room that’s also the hippest mid-mod space in the city.
