Ocho feels like a tapas bar should: a crowded, informal neighborhood place, stuffed onto a street corner and easy to miss. Get the garlicky gambas, warm plates of octopus with white beans and chorizo, and pan con chocolate (a dessert-toast that goes from sweet to salty to spicy in a magical manner). The bar’s specialty is a $10 Añejo margarita (which is worth it), but decent wines may be had for cheap.
