Scout Notes: After 17 years in Manhattan’s food service industry, owner Julio Hugo decided to take his show on the road to Spain. On the way, he stumbled into the wilderness of a land called Bushwick, a place peppered with newcomers outfitted in bright colors and sometimes ill-fitted attire. Carving out an upscale niche, Hugo opened El Mio Cid, named for the conqueror revered as a hero by the Spanish people. The epic name and willingness to stake his claim befitted Hugo’s approach to authentic gourmet Spanish cuisine. Housed in an airy interior fit for feverish festivities and fine dining, the crowds came pouring in. Tapas are all the rage here, served both cold and hot. Frias lovers will most enjoy the Jamon Serrano y Queso manchego, a spread of cold cuts of ham, peppers, and Manchego cheese atop toasted bread. Those who like it hot should poach the Setas rellenas; packed with shrimp, scallops, and fresh crab meat, our hat goes off to these sizzling, stuffed caps. Get hot and heavy with the Biztec Alegria, a saucy sirloin lacquered with herbs and green peppercorns. The Old Country meets the city at El Mio Cid. Fear not your ability to conquer uncharted cravings. Menu Highlights: Jamon y Queso manchego, $9.50 Gambas al ajilo (fresh tiger shrimp in garlic sauce), $8.50 Setas rellenas, $8.50 Bistec Algeria, $17 Paella velenciana, $16 Assorted house sangrias, $6/glass, $17/pitcher Hours: Sunday - Thursday, 12 pm - 11 pm Friday - Saturday, 12 pm - 12 am
