Had dinner at Despana in Princeton after a long day of meetings. We were a very large party. The food and service was pretty good with a couple of minor misses. The place specializes in Spanish cuisine, as in from Spain, just being clear. I happen to love Spain's food and wines, but the Spanish wine list, while not terrible, could be a little broader in scope. We tried many of the long list of Tapas selections and every one of them was creative and delicious, my favorite being the garlic shrimp. Expect to wait a bit for the freshly made Paella, they have several varieties, all made to order. I very much enjoyed the Paella Negra, blackened with squid ink which adds enormous flavor to the dish. The Paella Mixta was good, albeit served a tad dry for my taste. Service was very good, especially for such a large group.
