Best Paella 2007. When it comes to paella, that incredibly complicated dish of sunny Valencia, it's best to squeeze into a Speedo and hit the beaches of Spain. But if that's not in the cards, go to Port Chester. At Patrias, Barcelona-born Chef/Owner Mariano Aznar is crafting his natal dish with Spanish olive oil, fish fume, rice, chorizo, beef, calamari, shrimp, and scallops (and way too many other ingredients to list in this space). Best of all, at Patrias, you can get in the mood for your beach-fresh paella with addictive tapas washed down with cool Spanish sangria or crisp Peruvian beer. It's like a Spanish beach vacation without all the sunburned Brits.
