    Get the fried lamb intestines-fried so finely that they've curled and buckled in the heat, becoming golden brown & crisp. They taste like lamb potato chips-dip them in the tart chile sauce on the side

    Recover from long Fashion Week days at the tiny, laid-back Spanish wine bar. Ditch industry types, try its famous uni panini, and nightcap with one of your real friends. Read more

    The uni panini here is one of the most exhilarating sandwiches ever invented—domestic sea urchin spread in a baguette with Korean hot mustard oil. Read more

    The uni panini is something completely on its own: creamy sea urchin, heat from the mustard oil … a small sandwich made me feel like I was getting so much. - Jeffrey Saad, United Tastes of America

    New dishes include dirty rice with rabbit, flash-fried shell-on shrimp, and soft scrambled eggs with sea anemone. Favorites from the old menu are still available, and they plan to serve lunch soon.

    An excellent tapas joint; don't miss the uni sandwich or patatas bravas.

    They keep to the Spanish tradition of serving great wine with authentic and small-enough-to-tease dishes. We love the intimacy and the flirtatious vibes of both atmosphere and staff. Read more

    The tongue, soft scrambled eggs with anemone, and uni panini are all amazing- the anemone especially cooks up like a nice clam belly or sweetbread. Also, bet you can't say uni panini five times fast.

    Ponchos morunos, nuestras bravas and EQP gambas al ajillo are standouts. Also try the pomada cocktail!

  • ThePurplePassport.com

    Besides the refreshing cocktails (the gin-based Pomada was deliciously minty), we love the flirty service, the spicy small plates, and the atmospheric interior with its authentic Iberian flair. Read more

    The "bag of bacon" is sort of a cross between bacon and pork rinds. I order a second bag and ate it myself.

    Basque tapas/pinxtos. From Eater: All of the tapas are worth trying, but make sure to order the uni panini, fideua, and braised tongue.

    Date vibes in the back but don't neglect the bar. Sweet staff with excellent recommendations...bravas and squid in its own ink owww owww

    Don't sit at the bar unless you want a view of the kitchen (hint: microwave!). Can someone please buy them a curtain? Been coming here for three years and still an issue. Great cocktails though.

    Nate S. · July 31, 2013
  • Rob C.

    The pomadas are amazing. I will never tire of them!

    Small, but great food. Try their frozen gin drink & patatas bravas.

    Don't come in a group of more than two or three, because a) you won't be able to sit together and b) you won't want to share.

    A little pricey but great little spot - the ham croquetas, patatas bravas and fava beans were super yum. Will be back for their alcoholic slushies in summer. W/ @StephLyndon (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Don't miss the lomo! So good and flavorful. Skip the sangria and go for the Spanish wines or the frozen gin basil lemonade.

    Reminds me of the best in Madrid, Barca & SanSe (the best pintxos!) Get: Veal bone marrow! Spanish sausage and white anchovies! Pringá - braised meat sandwich. Warning: must share with others!

    One more thing, the service is splendid here!

    Lomo bocadillo is great. Gazpacho is a creamy delight. Get also patatas bravas. Gambas were ok, pulpo was a bit rubbery, not like in Spain. Definitely wash ur meal down with excellent sangria!

    Kostas · June 9, 2011
  • Kerrie L.

    Wondeful anchovies, which sounds weird but true. Order with the garlic/tomato bread. And the shrimp dish is amazing.

    Kerrie L. · April 7, 2011
  • Chris D.

    Make no mistake... For years advertised as one of the best 'sandwiches' in the city, the uni panini is a mere breadstick. A sublime, would-kill-your-own-mother-to-get-one breadstick.
