Segovia Spanish Restaurant
You'll find lots and lots of innovative small plates, as well as overflowing paella pans at this popular South Lamar tapas bar.
1500 S. Lamar #150, 512/473-2211
Here diners are treated to European classics such as escargots in garlic butter, moules marinières, and steak frites all at shamefully reasonable prices.
509 Hearn, 512/236-0642
This terrific tapas bar is truly a neighborhood spot. It's a good value, you can always get a table, and you can park. Menu items change with the seasons, but you can always count on a crudo of the day, as well as a few nightly specials.
