Village Voice's Description

It’s rare to see a full-blown Spanish restaurant that’s not at least 30 years old, yet El Mio Cid (named after the epic poem) in Bushwick is a relative newcomer. As such, it places a greater emphasis on tapas rather than main courses. Thrill to bargain selections like a giant plate of warm herbed olives or a chorizo brought bubbling in a crock with gravy, or a trio of perfectly cooked sardines. For vegetarians, there are selections galore, including white asparagus with an agreeable relish, a newfangled salad of shredded fennel, and an assortment of mushrooms sautéed in garlic sauce. Entrees largely fall flat, though there’s a vegetarian paella that is justifiably celebrated. Plenty of seating in the dark atmospheric dining room, incongruously decorated with a picture of Vincent van Gogh.

    The red sangria is fantastic! Nearly as good as in Barcelona.

    If u live in 'shwick and plan on enjoying a summer Friday-stop buy for an afternoon glass of sangria and 'beets & spinach salad.' you'll forget winter ever happened.

    Anything is a win. Especially with una jarra de sangria. Madre Mia.
