“I was craving Tapas close to home and found this place on the Internet and I decided to give it a try with a girlfriend. OMG, the ambiance, the waitress/bartender and the food were amazing, and the bill was very affordable and we had so much food. They are constantly revisiting the menu and changing it, which I find fantastic. I recommend this place if you want to stay local and have great food.” This is just one of the many accolades across review sites and from locals in the Gaithersburg, Maryland area when they recount their experiences at Boca Botanas.

Local artist takes off with graffiti artwork, canvas painting
When David Zambrano was growing up, he took the red line metro train from Arlington to Silver Spring, Maryland and saw the array of graffiti on the walls and tunnels the train passed by. Inspired by the colors and variety of designs, Zambrano found his passion—art. Drawing from what he saw on the streets of Maryland, he began doodling during his free time, subsequently learned other forms of art like sketching and contemporary art. He also spent a lot of his time at his father’s body shop, which acted as a transition into painting on a different kind of medium.
