Best Spanish 


In a town like Cleveland, where top-notch, chef-owned bistros appear to grow on trees, it's increasingly difficult for a diner to be truly blown away by a dining experience. But that's precisely what (still) happens at this Warehouse District institution. The setting is smart, cosmopolitan and befitting a special occasion — as is the service, overseen by a battalion of be-tuxed servers. While expertly prepared fish and seafood is Mallorca's sweet spot, a lengthy list of nightly specials covers pretty much everything else, with Spanish and Portuguese dishes built around beef, chicken, pork and rabbit. Chances are good that if it swims, flies or hops, it's a special. The family-style entrees are served with Spanish rice, a large plate of crisp seasonal vegetables and some very addictive house-fried potato chips.
