The bar manager at Dalí (415 Washington Street, Somerville, 617.661.3254) boasts that he serves the best traditional sangria ($6) in town, and after a few sips, I’m inclined to agree with him. Fruit marinates in a sea of a light-bodied red wine, brandy, and a splash of triple sec, which gives the concoction just enough of a citrus kick without overpowering the subtle spice of the alcohol. It does, in fact, remind me of time spent in Barcelona, sitting at an outdoor café and watching the hustle and bustle of tourists, street performers, and locals, all mingling under the Spanish sun. Dalí also offers a delicious cava sangria ($7), made with a base of pineapple juice, mango purée, and peach schnapps and finished with Spanish sparkling white wine.

To mix things up, I hit Myers+Chang (1145 Washington Street, Boston, 617.542.5200), Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers’s Asian-fusion lovechild, next. The white sangria ($9) is made with sake, which

Chinese restaurants have given us so much flavor and value that it seems almost rude to point out that Boston hasn’t had a lot of luck with making them upscale.
