Description

Village Voice's Description

Small plates and romance are on the menu at this cozy West Village tapas spot. The menu skews towards Spain, although an eclectic, global influence pervades the cooking. If you're feeling flush with cash you can order the entire menu for $420, although most people opt for three or four dishes per person. Fried goat cheese with lavender-infused honey, pulled-pork empanadas and the confit octopus ceviche all point towards the non-traditional style of chef Harrison Mosher, who earned his stripes as sous-chef at 71 Clinton Fresh Food with Wylie Dufresne. The two-story townhouse is undeniably charming; walk down off the street, past the long bar and nab a seat upstairs, where iron latticework lines the balcony looking down on the rest of the restaurant. If you're on a date (and many of the diners are), you might want to secure a seat next to the roaring, stone-lined fireplace. Another good idea for a date: booze. A lengthy list of Italian, French and Spanish wines, specialty cocktails and craft beers should help things get off to a good start.—Keith Wagstaff

    They have a variety of yummy tapas and a great wine list. The brussel sprouts are delicious and you must try the goat cheese balls.

The atmosphere is great, the food delicious, and don't forget to check out the lengthy wine list or order the sangria! If you are out for a good time with a large group of friends you can order "the whole shebang" and try every plate on the menu! Don't... More >>

    Get about 8 or more people together and order the entire menu (30 or so items) at a huge discount. Some of my favorite tapas in the city.
