don't miss the real deal, upgrade to bbe vipBy Pete Dalis Born and raised in France, Chef Zadi has worked at restaurants in five different countries on three different continents with multiple Michelin stars. His new gastropub, Spanish Fly, will wow you with its off-the-radar beers and wines (try the Moroccan “Cabernache”), but it will win your heart with the show-stopping paella alla Valenciana. Saffron-encased rice is cooked with utmost precision, and the trio of lemon, marinated artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes infuses and animates the gloriously fresh calamari, littleneck clams, shrimp, and mussels. Also to note is the brik, an Algerian breakfast pocket with dough lighter than phyllo, stuffed with spinach, mushroom, cheese, and—yes—a whole egg (or try the Korean-influenced variety, with tuna and kimchi). The bronzed pastry has the perfect doughy crunch. Zadi’s French technique leaves just the right amount of colonized North African flavor and hydration in the savory, autumnal duck tagine with ripe figs, honey, and almonds—perfect to soak up with that semolina couscous.
