We just want to put Paloma in our pocket and carry it around with us. This darling, affordable neighborhood restaurant charmed us with mussels steamed in beer broth dotted with house-made chorizo, a simple plate of perfect shrimp in garlic butter, and juicy pork skewers with chimichurri. It chilled us with understated lighting and underpowered music (as in, just right). The goodnight kiss that sealed the deal: fluffy, crunchy, cinnamon-dusted, just-made warm churros with chocolate chili dipping sauce and a perfect, satiny flan accompanied by a Revelator coffee café au lait. Breakfast and cocktails are also on point.
