Gazpacho, Tapas, Paella and Sangria. Our brunch @ Jaleo last December was a really good time, with great conversation and ample tasting of most of the tapas menu. :)
Jaleo in Crystal City is a little bit more laid back than its DC and MD cousins, but shares the same good Spanish food found at the other locations. Come out share a paella or tapas with your fellow intuverts. :) We look forward to seeing you there...
Jaleo Crystal City is located just a couple of blocks south of the Crystal City Metro, at 23rd and Crystal Drive.
Coming from the Metro? Just stay inside the underground, and walk down to one of the exits south of 20th street on to Crystal Drive (turn left at the "Slice & Dice" and Framing store hallway for the best exit), go outside, turn right and walk to the corner. Or walk the entire length of underground (south) toward 23rd, exit on 23rd Street, turn left and go to the corner.
Driving? On the weekends, parking is free in the Crystal City Shops parking garage. Click this link for driving directions and a map of parking locations: http://www.thecrystalcityshops.com/_files/docs/ccs_directions_parking_02b.pdf
Heads Up: Jaleo is a restaurant that is notorious for not being able to split the bill into separate checks, but will split the total into thirds or fourths. Attendees will most likely share their portion of the total bill on a check with at least 3 or 4 people. I recommend that you bring cash, approximately $30 - $40. Last year with 14 people, we had an average per person check of a bit over $27, which did not include drinks which were separate from the overall bill.
