In the same restaurant family as Proof and 2 Birds 1 Stone, Estadio is a mecca of Spanish tapas done right. The large dining room is plastered with Moorish tiles and buzzing with socialites whose tables collect tiny plates of ham, cheese and pintxos as the meal progresses. Bartender Adam Bernbach has created a cocktail menu flush with sherry classics, seasonal Gin and Tonics and a couple of oddball slushy drinks that might not be very Spanish in spirit, but deliver in composition (think manzanilla and pistachio).
