Indeed, prices are reasonable enough to make La Barraca a regular hangout, particularly if you like Spanish wines. Though the list isn't extensive, it's a better-suited assortment of red-and-white varietals, including Riojas, Tempranillos, and Viura Blancos, than I've come across in most ethnically driven restaurants. Fernandez also has bottles off the list that he can pour if you like something a bit more esoteric, such as a Rosado (Spanish Rosé). Couple a copita of Palomino Fino sherry with a puff of a cigarillo -- Fernandez proffered us one of his along with the check -- and strum a few chords on the guitar and you can justly claim to have been transported from a Plantation strip mall to a rice plantation house in Spain.
