NOTE: Bilbao is now La Flora.
Bilbao is in the same building that houses the Metro Cinemas (formerly home to the miserable Stella's). It's cozy and full of warmth and color, with paintings of enormous red poppies, and the tapas-style menu is good for a speedy bite before (or after) a film.
This place is closed.
