Description

Village Voice's Description

The focus here is, not surprisingly, on paella, served in portions for two from giant cast-iron pans. Rice comes slightly crisp on the outside filled with a long list of goodies like the Paella Socarrat (chicken, fish, beef, shrimp, cuttlefish, mussels, cockle clams) and the slightly more adventurous Paella Valenciana (pork, rabbit, snails, scallions and sugar snow peas). The giant paella pans embody the social nature of the restaurant; diners here sit at a long, narrow communal table lined with 24 stools. Waiters squeeze past the walls of exposed brick and white wooden cabinet doors to refill glasses of Spanish wine and bring out additional tapas like sizzling shrimp with garlic, crispy croquettes and Jamon Iberico, the prized, 24-month dry-aged Spanish ham. The restaurant doesn¹t take reservations, so you¹re best off coming early or leaving your name and finding a bar nearby. Once inside, prepare to speak loudly, as the volume of the Spanish music and conversation is fairly loud.—Keith Wagstaff

Tips from foursquare

  • If you have about 30 minutes, try a single-serving of paella for about $22. The tab for a plentiful lunch is roughly $30 a person.

    Expect to wait to share space at the giant communal table that stretches the length of the room, but Socarrat serves near note-perfect paella. A solid menu of Spanish starters, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    Really, just get anything here. Amazing.

    Eight types of scrumptious crusted paella, tapas, and wine.

  • ThePurplePassport.com on 02/12/12

    This has to be one of the best places in NYC for paella–no one else can match on quality or range of options. Expect to stuff yourself silly because the portions are huge.
