Best of Boston

2024 Best Spanish Restaurant

Taberna de Haro

Chef-owner Deborah Hansen opened this paragon of tapas as a tiny storefront more than 25 years ago, eventually expanding with the adjacent Straight Law bar and a popular sidewalk patio. Along the way, she built the city’s most expansive, award-winning Spanish wine and sherry lists. As she glides into semi-retirement, we’re beyond thrilled that brand-new owner and Boston hospitality stalwart Kristie Weiss (formerly of Haley.Henry and Nathálie) is keeping both Hansen’s beloved Spanish menu and Hansen herself onboard as wine manager.
