    Good but not unique. For vegetarians, the queso fundido can be made sans anchovies.

    The dishes are quite good and authentic. They have a kind of miniature hamburger that is called El Doble, and a terrine of anchovies with melted Manchego and red peppers

    This Chelsea tapas restaurant from chefs Alex Raij and Eder Montero is still going strong after nearly 10 years in business. Do not miss the uni panini or the fried garbanzo beans. Read more

    The Bitches say: B. Great ambiance and attentive service. The brunch fare was hit or miss, but we would recommend trying El Quinto Pino for drinks and dessert if nothing else. Read more

    Granted food is tasty but it is way over priced for the portion size. The uni panini is basically a breadstick. The shrimp fritters are two dinky pieces. The croquettes are like the size of a pinky.

    Underwhelming. House wine is mediocre but all you can really get without buying a bottle. Cocktails are sugary. Tapas are overpriced for their lack of creativity and flavor.

    EQP is a tucked away tiny spot, a little hard to find, but a gem! Some of the good tapas and sangria I've had in the big apple; great for dating or a catch up with buds

    El Doble, $12 If gussied-up, ethnicized burgers are rarely good, this is the Basque-inspired exception. It comes with Idiazábal cheese, pickled onions, cornichons, and “salsa especial.”

    The croquetas are the closest thing I've had to legit outside of Spain. Also, don't let the anchovy scare you from the queso fundido - it's delicious.

    Uni Panino is very good however it is 1.5" wide x 5" long. So it's a small plate.

    This restaurant has a very "you're in Europe eating in someone's kitchen" vibe to it. The Picos y Taquitos, croquettes and Arroz Brut de Conejo are all incredibly flavorful.

    Horchata frozen cocktail (!!) sounds like a winner, but I was a little underwhelmed. The garlic shrimp will more than make up for it tho.

    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.

    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.

    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.
