Bar Carrera

East Village
Food plays a significantly bigger role here than it does next door at Frederick Twomey’s wine bar, Bar Veloce. The Basque menu lists tasty bites such as serrano-ham sandwiches on mini brioches and slices of pork belly with juniper-accented chickpea puree. In keeping with the theme, the wine list highlights obscure favorites from the Iberian Peninsula. The decor is Spanish-influenced too: mosaic tiles, cement bar and pans dangling from the ceiling.
