Taberna Arros y Vi
The Lazy Ox guy's Westside paella haven

Located right by the Promenade, Taberna Arros y Vi's a rustic, washed-out room that looks kinda like an upscale version of the type of place Antonio Banderas would walk into in 1995 carrying a guitar case full of not-guitars, except at this one, the owner of Lazy Ox is doling out Mediterranean dishes and booze, not vengeful murder lust.

You're one billion percent going to want to order a paella -- they've got multiple options, including this bad boy that's chock-full of seafood, as well as one topped w/ rabbit leg, lima beans, and bomba rice, or what a very Italian offensive coordinator used to instruct Joe Montana to throw on third and long.

Don't you dare write off the squid-ink pasta.

If you get desperado for drinks, you're gonna wanna cozy up to the balsamic-upped "Spanish Berry", or the housemade sangrias, including one w/ red peppers and cilantro.
