Under the direction of world-renowned 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. In DC's Penn Quarter since 1993, the original Jaleo location helped to transform the neighborhood into the heart of the city that it is today. Jaleo is a Spanish word meaning revelry, fun, and bustle, featuring sleek furnishings and artwork created in Spain by some of the country’s best contemporary designers.
