Have dinner at Columbia. The food is delicious Spanish/Cuban cuisine and the atmosphere is old world Spanish style. The staff are very friendly and I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve eaten there. Their sangria is my favorite and I always enjoy their tapas and seafood dishes, especially the paella! Reservations are recommended, but not required.
