    Larger than tapas; duck egg w/black truffles - must get! Also tried Long Island striped bass w/peaches, razor clams, bone marrow, jamon iberico & mussels w/chorizo. Complex flavors and unique pairings

    Another Batali success - this tapas joint is up there as one of our favorites. We love just about everything here, but the razor clams and the pumpkin and goat cheese croquetas are must-orders!

    Fantastic tapas and authentic experience if you stand at the counter at Bar Jamon. Order the standards: pan con tomate, mussels escabeche, rillettes, Jamón iberico, polpo and finish with churros.

    Not your average tapas place. The plates are actually descent proportions and have such a variation of tastes that you'll be full after about 4-5 (sharing). The best: pigs ears, the razor clams

    Try the Patatas bravas. Superb and delicious. Don't listen to them when they tell u that u can just walk in w/o reservation. when we arrived, we couldn't be seated since we didn't have a reservation!

    Casa Mono serves the food of Catalunya, with an emphasis on traditional dishes like fideos and croquetas. Expect a packed crowd at Bar Jamon, where the charcuterie and wine are the thing.

    Order the pata negra and the sherry wine fleet. The charred octopus is great. This place can be very busy so make sure you call ahead and get a reservation.

    Razor clams made me a believer. A simple dish with incredible taste. The pork croqueta is a piece of heaven. Their jamón ibérico is a great cut. Great spot to bring a date.

    You can't make a bad choice on this menu. The blackened beats, soft shell crab, and pork belly were highlights. Be sure to ask for the sommelier for help with the extensive wine menu - he's great.

    This place makes me believe unicorns and Santa Claus exist. Wow. Charcuterie, seared duck breast and pork meatballs made the stars align. This is placed in the top 1% of meals I've had in NYC.

    COME HUNGRY & GET EVERYTHING. Pictured here: briny uni, silky eggs, fruity olive oil, tangy lime zest, and earthy nuts. Apparently I never knew balance before eating this. Dessert: olive oil cake!

    This has been my favorite restaurant in NYC for 12 years and counting. Have never disappointed. So consistently delicious. That seared foie with cinco cebollas oh man oh man.

    “When looking at this Spanish wine list, I prefer Txakoli as an aperitif, then dabble with rosé before juicy, unctuous red wines from undiscovered regions that ooze with quality.” - Laura Williamson Read more

    We love sitting stool top and seeing the magic happen in the open kitchen. (That said, the food is so good it can be hard to take our eyes off our plates long enough to watch.) Read more

    The combination of pork, seafood and aioli in the classic fideo noodle-based dish is irresistible. It is the must-order at Mario Batali's Spanish restaurant. Read more

    Catalan Spanish food at its finest in such a cozy warm venue. Goat cheese pumpkin croquetas and tamarindo pork belly dishes are not to be missed. One Michelin star well deserved.

    Razor Clams is drenched in olive oil & garlic. Pulpo had slight bitter & citrusy flavors from the fennel and grapefruit. Pork Croquetas were a bit dry for my liking & Pan con Tomate is boring.

    Holy grail of amazing Spanish small plate. I return for the Razor Clams, Foie Gras (best), Duck, Pulpo, Skirt Steak, Jamon Iberico. Arrive at 6PM to ensure seating. Fun: Cocks comb avail upon request

    I absolutely die for the Razor Clams! No worries, if you can't get a table, Bar Jamon is right around the corner with a huge wine selection and charcuterie station. -Arnold Myint, Top Chef

    The pork belly is AMAZING. Didn't love the mono salad. You can get away with less than 3 dishes per person if you're not famished

    sit at the bar and watch the tapas masters earn their keep. my faves are the snapper crudo, soft shell crab bocadillo and pork belly with uni. also - great foursquare Special for Newbies.

    If you want tapas, this is it. Our waiter recommended the duck egg with mojama, and it was a spot on. Also, sit at the bar to experience Spanish food cooked à la plancha (on the grill).

    Creative Spanish tapas.., cozy restaurant in Aster place. Food is a little salty side but very tasty.

    The best tapas are razor clams, house-made chorizo, spicy rabbit kebabs, piquillo peppers, pulpo, or fried duck egg. – Green Guide Editor

    5 years since the last time here. Different times and different company. Happy with the girls here... And the razor clams.
  • Pablo G.
    It's a bit pricy 100$ for two people, but they have a bar right next to it 'bar jamon' that is much more affordable but is really small. The place is small and cozy, try the calamari and croquetas!

    It has been a while since I have been but the tapas are phenomenal. It doesn't hurt that it has a Michelin Star either, seven years in a row.

    Chef Andy Nusser has crafted a menu of substantial tapas and medium-sized entrées, done mostly “a la plancha” with unmistakably Catalan flavors; get the duck egg with mojama. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Duck egg, razor clams, pigs ears, rabbit... literally just ate a Dr. Suess book and it was magnificent. Add lorax to the menu and fuggadaboutit.

    Yummy. Wines are from Spain, ie prepare to enjoy with the meat then be ready for the tipping point into headache and the hangover later.

    Come before 6pm if you want to attempt walk-in dining. Bar seats are the best because you get to watch the chefs prepare the delicious dishes!

    I love both sides. Casa Mono for the razor clams and beets. Bar Jamon for wine and cheese. When you go for the cheese get a sheep, cow and goat. Love life.

    This place is off the freaking hook. Delicious tapas, desserts (of course try the traditional crema catalana!) and world class wine (cava!).

    Bone marrow, pork belly, and pork croquettes were delicious! Servers seemed grumpy, but it was Christmas Eve, so they might just not have been happy to be working. Moroccan lamb was ok.

    Make sure to speak to Ashley when choosing wine. She is passionate about Spanish wines, has cultivated a great list, and personally knows many of the producers. You are bound to try something unique!

    Many likable choices though razor clams stand out; eggs + Uni sounds like heaven but I'm happy eating Uni on its own.
