There are countless reasons why I strongly dislike the new design/atmosphere of Jaleo. But because the food is so consistently good, I won't harp on that. Except to say: food should never, EVER be served in a shoe. And tonight, our croquetas de pollo were served. In a shoe. A clear plastic shoe with red shoelaces. Granted, I was crying over delightful tapas. But I was still crying.
And so was Jesus.


I guess that means you won't be buying this, mentioned in Nevin Martell's post on CityEats:

Destination Cellars

Finally, you don’t need to become a shoplifter to score one of the designer sneakers used to serve croquetas at Jaleo. This über-über José Andrés Collection Gift Package comes with the famous footwear, as well as Andrés’ cookbook and a brace of Spanish wines. $950.

Gin boldly--that grace may abound!

That thing is hideous. What is the purpose of serving food in that?

If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic.
If not ORGANIC, then Family farm.
If not FAMILY FARM, then Local business.
If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.

I would suggest that the ultimate Spanish foodie package would be a personal trip to Spain with Gerry Dawes.

Please note my comment at the bottom of Nevin's post to find out more information about Gerry's tours.

1 or 2 of the suggestions on Nevin's post invalidate the entire thing for me. Then again, the several excellent ideas don't need that much highlighting anyway. And that's all I have to say about that. ;)

Such awesome foreshadowing, Tujague - CityEats, Uber, and José Andrés ... all in one, big, happy day!
