El Tercer Ojo
This dark, candlelit restaurant, despite the name (The Third Eye), wears its bohemianism lightly. The crowd is younger and more stylish and Nicaraguan than in the places right on the plaza, and the shelves of books and haze of cigarette smoke (ah, travel) makes one wonder if there is a Spanish word for gemütlich. Three orders of tapas made a full dinner for three.
