THE SPIRIT & FLAVORS OF SPAIN
Under the direction of famed chef José Andrés, Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere. Created in 1993 by Rob Wilder, Roberto Alvarez, and José Andrés, Jaleo has become a DC institution.
Bethesda is the center of the Spanish community in the DC area, and Jaleo has been their culinary gathering place since opening in 2001. Our 2013 renovation captures the exciting atmosphere of contemporary Spain.
