I was a regular at El Faro during the very early 60’s before moving to Dallas. I remember being there when the artist painted the mural in the bar area. He painted in exchange for food.
Anyway, I have reports that El Faro is still a great Spanish restaurant.
My personal favorite: Clams in green sauce.
I still have the recipe and make it for friends once in a while.
El Faro is at the corners of Greenwich & Horatio Streets. Do go!
