At Ken Oringer's South End spot, create a customized Spanish meal by indulging in your favorite tapas — that's small plate dining for all the non-foodies out there. Collaborate with your date on which mini meals to sample. There are churros and tuna tartare, plus dates stuffed with blue cheese and almonds, which are then wrapped in ham. And don't forget the sangria, of course. ¡Que Delicioso!
