Xixón Spanish Restaurant opened in 2001 as a market and grew to include a fine-dining restaurant. Consider the Asturian fabada, a rich bean stew that's the signature dish of Spain's Asturian region. The traditional version served here is so labor-intensive it's offered only Saturday. It's rife with white fava beans, blood sausage, chorizo, and a salty Jabugo ham, all simmered for four hours in a hearty saffron-spiked broth. The steak tartare uses ingredients so fresh it's available one day a week. Of course, you might want to visit just for the rice dishes. The menu touts four kinds of paella, such as con bogavante, which includes shrimp, clams, mussels, squid, and Maine lobster. If you still have room, the serious dessert menu lists more than a dozen delectables you won't find anywhere else, including a carpaccio de piña, which includes house-made mint ice cream.
