Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This modern Upper East Side eatery, named for the Catalonion wine pitchers adorning the walls, is a welcoming neighborhood tapas spot. Stick with small plates, like tender veal meatballs basted in a leek and crushed-tomato broth; scallops encrusted in bread crumbs and bits of bacon; or garlicky braised leeks. Entrées are less impressive—the seafood in a monkfish paella was overcooked and its promised saffron nearly undetectable. But if you live in the neighborhood, you could do worse than settling in here for a nibble and a bottle of wine, plucked from the all-Spanish list.
