El Lateral information
El Lateral does terrific pinchos (tapas), which serve as the ideal accompaniment to the fine wines on offer. Tapas are creative without being over the top (wild mushroom croquettes or sirloin with mustard sauce). This being Salamanca, they draw a pretty upmarket crowd, but you’d be surprised how rapidly the ties loosen up after work. Service is restaurant standard, rather than your average tapas-bar brusqueness. They have another branch in Malasaña, with a further bar-restaurant in Huertas.
