Description

Houston Press' Description

World-class paella made with housemade chorizo is the main attraction at this Memorial Spanish restaurant. At dinnertime, Rioja turns out another giant pan of fresh paella every 40 minutes. But there's also a great selection of hot and cold tapas and some interesting Spanish wines on hand. Live entertainment is offered on weekends.
