Overview

Expect modern takes on traditional Spanish cuisine at SER, a casual-yet-refined spot in Arlington marked by yellow banquettes and rustic tiled floors with views into an open kitchen. Dish highlights include gambas al ajillo (garlic-laced spicy grilled shrimp), scallops gratin with sea urchin sauce or mixed seafood paella. Drink offerings include sangria, sherries, craft beers, global wines and Spanish-inspired cocktails like the Wexler’s Secret (tequila, blood orange, lime, orange liqueur, jalapeno salt).
