Fogón, in Spanish, is the word for the stove or hearth where people used to cook in times gone by. Alberto?s choice of name clearly sets out his agenda: you go to his restaurant first and foremost to eat!
Dining at Fogón is to immerse yourself in the tapas culture which expresses, through its blend of improvisation and enjoyment, freshness and conviviality, the Spanish philosophy of good living?
More than a mere ?tapas bar?, the Fogón is in reality an arroceria, a Spanish restaurant specialising in rice, be it cooked in a paella, a caldero or in a cast iron pot.
