Tim Love ventures to the Iberian Peninsula for his new rooftop perch overlooking the historic Stockyards, downtown, and much of the city. Sit on a fancy stool at one of two counters overlooking kitchen or cocktail operations or in the cozy bar area. From a menu starring noshes from the smoker, grill, or wood-burning oven, a sure hit is Jose’s Tacos, tissue-thin slices of cured jamón iberico crowned with caviar. Smoked hummus with roasted sweet chiles spread on toasted bread makes a good companion to both the roasted Island Creek oysters, topped with lemon, Parmesan, and micro-basil, and the spicy, buttery whole grilled shrimp. Bigger plates include tender, juicy pork shoulder slathered with aji amarillo chiles and chimichurri; ask for some of the house-made tortillas alongside.
