    Best wine and tapas in NYC, with a nice laid-back feel.

  • The Corcoran Group

    Unassuming storefront opens up to a high ceiling space with an extensive selection of delicious tapas and an ever-changing list of specialty cocktails. It’s perfect to impress on a first date.

    Impressive wine list here! For a food-friendly white at a great price, opt for Jesus Diaz's "El Blanco". Based on the malvar grape, it has a strong minerality, balanced by some honey notes. Salud!

    This unassuming tapas bar is great for a date or special occasion. There are too many great dishes to name them all but patatas bravas, braised berkshire pork belly, and fideua negra are worth getting

    Really amazing tapas and Spanish wines. Must have the squid ink pasta, tuna tartare, cauliflower, asparagus.

    HipHostessNYC · July 1, 2012

    We appreciate the spaciousness and the clean, modern feel. Go here with a small group of friends (who share your taste in delicious Catalonian tapas and don’t mind eating family style). Read more · January 23, 2012

    I recommend the patatas bravas, brussels sprouts and chick peas. For dessert, the truffles are heavenly

    The Trencat d'Ous, Gambes, Bacalla and Remolatxa are my favorites [I'm a pescatarian!].

    Order the Tuna tartar appetizer and skip the croquettes. Duck and steak entrees are great choices!

    Get the arroz del mar and patates braves. Robust regional flavors with a spicy surprise kick

    Squid ink is yummy. Head chef is kind of a cutie and the mushroom with fried egg is delicious!

    Eat your vegetables. Go for the cauliflower.

    Pork belly, meat plate, spinach, potatoes bravas and margaritas better than most. But be prepared for terrible service. And don't forgo the chocolate souffle. Worth the wait.

    Greasy. Cool venue but food makes your tummy hurt. Not a fan

    Best Catalan tapas outside of BCN! Great wine choices as well.

  • Shea W.

    The place is really expensive for tapas! If you want something as good check out Tapeo on Stanton. Saying that though the Patatas Bravas and the lentil Paella is incredible!

    Squid Ink pasta, and duck over cocoa bread. YUM!
