It’s called “Elephant’’ for no special reason, but the name fits because this is one cozy spot you won’t forget. “We’re a modern Spanish tapas bar,’’ says co-owner Rich Reeve. He and partner Maya Karrol offer a unique selection of wines and serve up a delicious menu of bite-size appetizers and snacks like fennel and clementine salad and chicken piri piri.

About: This bold addition to the Ulster County dining scene, housed in a handsome Victorian storefront on busy Wall Street, offers only small plates. But don't worry, chef Rich Reeve infuses big, Spanish tastes into inventive dishes like chorizo and chocolate and Basque-style chicken with piri piri sauce.
