Spanish wines and eats in NYC?

Posted by dmcker, Apr 9, 2009.

A branch of my family who love Spanish food and wine will be visiting the New York area next week, and I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for good places to eat Spanish (both tapas and proper sitdown meals) in Manhattan and environs. Ideally with good wine lists...

I need to think a bit more but immediately Casa Mono and Tia Pol spring to mind!

I'll come back and flesh this out later this afternoon.

Thanks, Greg. Saw the wine list for Casa Mono, and it looks to reward investigating. Anywhere else pop to mind?

Ok so I'm back at my desk.

Tia pol rocks for Tapas and has a great ever changing wine list but it's small and awkward, still great.

El Faro is solid and a NYC old time classic

Sevilla like was, a solid old school standby.

Spanish Tavern is even seedier but the food is pretty good.

Alta has a great list and great food, another must visit along with Casa Mono.

That's all that I can think of though I know I am missing one. When it comes to me I'll add it here.

I hope you mean in the North End?

Taranta, Antico Forno, Pagliluca's, and my favoriate, Cantina Italiana.

Definitely meant the North End, RB. My memories of late-night eats/drinks there from multiple visits a few years back are a bit vague, so thanks for the reminders and pointers. Found websites for all but Pagliluca's. Is that a bad thing?

Think my family will be eating well on this trip... :-)

If they are working on the website, it means they aren't working in the kitchen!

Just come down to DC!

We've got this Jose Andres dude. He's pretty good.

When I lived in NYC El Faro, http://elfaronyc.com/ was my favorite for paela. Xunta, http://www.xuntatapasbar.com/ was my fav for tapas.

Neither had great wine lists but the food more than made up for it.

Hi Greg,

So you escaped all the way to San Fran! Nice job!

El Faro, good call for the Paella and Xunto has an appropriate list and a lovely tapas menu.

Do you visit us back east ever?

Actually, I'm based in Paris but make it back often. I hope to be in NYC soon. In the meantime, I've been meaning to send you some samples of our wines.

Now that sounds like a great idea.

I'll send you a message.

Thanks
