This is our city’s touchstone small plate: four medjool dates, stuffed to bursting with smoky chorizo and just barely held together by a bacon belt, swimming in piquillo pepper sauce and blasted in an open-flame hearth until bubbly. There’s a reason, a decade and a half on, that every table in the joint seems to have an order of these on it.
