Description

Village Voice's Description

Despite all the obstacles, New York City dwellers will
flock to any spot offering a cool summer breeze. Salinas, a Spanish
spot in Chelsea featuring a retractable ceiling, is no exception.
The overall vibe is faux rustic chic-think Manolo Blahnik hiking
boots. The food, though, is pure Spain, inspired by the regions along the coast and the Balearic Islands. In addition to textbook tapas(shishito peppers, tomato-slathered toast), you can get decent dishes like rosejat rápida (basically a gourmet Spanish Rice-A-Roni) and a fine crispy suckling pig. Service, though, needs major work. But at least you're eating outside! Sorta.

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/04/11

    Try the Rosejat Rápida—a paella riff made with short noodles instead of rice—which incorporates poached chicken, chorizo and briny cockles. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • AskMen on 06/16/11

    The Spanish joint has a San Sebastian native in the kitchen making everything from small plates like Iberico ham on toasted bread & garlicky head-on shrimp to bigger, sharable portions.

  • The New York Times on 11/29/11

    Recommended dishes: Crujiente mahonés, shrimp with garlic, jamón Ibérico, braised tripe, pumpkin-and-chicken soup, poached octopus, rosejat rápida, grilled chicken, suckling pig, torrija caramelizada.

  • Gilt City on 08/17/11

    The name “Salinas” is an homage to the areas along the Mediterranean Sea where salt is harvested. This translates into tapas like fried shishito peppers and mussels in a wine and smoked paprika sauce.

  • Pedde J. on 11/17/13

    The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, but the smell of fresh flowers is what put this place on a whole other level.
