Village Voice's Description

Chef Franco Barrio lists both Boqueria and Casa Mono on his
resume, places that changed the popular perception of tapas in the city. Barrio's menu at Caliu ("smoldering ashes") mirrors those at both places, with the bedrock being small servings of Spanish charcuterie and cheeses of high quality--and high
expense, as well. The balance is divided into small and large plates. In the former category, the pan con tomate (small toasts smeared with tomatoes) are excellent, while the papas bravas ("fierce potatoes") taste reheated. In the latter, the lamb belly with yogurt sauce is spectacularly good, and so are the braised mussels, while the shrimp skewers are only a test of the cook's dexterity. The wine prices are surprisingly low, and the dark narrow premises make for a good date spot.

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    There’s no shortage of delicious seafood and house-made chorizo in the paella. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • Metromix on 02/28/11

    The bar has an all-Spanish wine and sherry list. For a meatier dish, try the housemade lamb bacon w/salsa verde and pickled scallion, or the rich blood sausage topped w/chickpeas and a poached egg.

  • Gilt City on 06/01/11

    The tapas served at this authentic West Village eatery have the seal of approval from Lady Gaga: she enjoyed a low-key evening here with some old NYC buddies last New Year’s Eve.

  • Louis F. on 06/21/11

    Boozey brunch for $25!

  • Matt on 11/25/12

    Brunch special is no joke
