Convivio might have grabbed the mantle for the best tapas in town. The restaurant has classed up what was a boring, boxy space when it held Table 7, adding earthy textures like warm orange light fixtures and community tables made of thick, beautifully idiosyncratic slabs of wood to balance the sleekly urban glass surroundings. The tapas include many traditional Spanish favorites like pa amb tomaquet (a Catalan version of bruschetta), tortilla española and albondigas (spanish meatballs) and super-premium jamón iberico that owner Oscar Aguilar imports from Spain, plus a menu of paellas. The wine menu leans Spanish, with plenty of cavas, garnachas (grenache) and tempranillos to go around, plus an expanding lounge space to enjoy it in.

Convivio's shared plates and late night hours make it perfect for hungry Washington partiers.
