Time Out says
Seamus Mullen's meat-and-provisions offshoot of his Gotham West Market tapas bar lives up to its name (el colmado means "the grocer" in Spanish). Along with small-plate staples from El Colmado (prawns a la plancha, lamb meatballs), Mullen is serving whole rotisserie chickens and large-format pork rib roasts, both of which are herb-brined for 24 hours. Pressed sandwiches and Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee are available at a grab-and-go counter, while a larder is stocked with imported Spanish olive oils and vinegars. The butchery sources meat from farms upstate, in Pennsylvania and Vermont for cuts like lamb leg and pork chops, plus house-made sausages and terrines. After dark, the white oak butcher-block counter converts to a wine bar, pouring Spanish bottles and local on-tap varietals such as a Long Island cabernet franc and a riesling-chardonnay blend from the Finger Lakes.
