From an email:
“Calle Cinco, the Spanish tapas pop-up from Chef Michael Schlow and team, will continue for the foreseeable future. Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from patrons and support from the Mt. Vernon Triangle neighborhood, Schlow, Chef George Rodrigues and the rest of the team have decided to extend the tapas concept.
As such, the team has debuted a new happy hour menu, available every day of the week from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. featuring $5 drinks, and an assortment of cured meats, cheeses and tapas priced at $7 and under. Highlights from the menu include two kinds of “bikini sandwiches,” Serrano ham and Manchego or mushroom, Mahon and truffle, a play on a grilled cheese that’s popular in Barcelona; as well as tortilla espanola, papas bravas and pan con tomate.
