Time Out says

This Meatpacking District tapas joint comes from Boston, where chef-owners Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s restaurant of the same name is widely beloved. The menu features both traditional dishes and modern interpretations. You’ll find both the simple pan con tomate, or bread with Spanish olive oil, tomato, garlic and sea salt ($8), and the popular tortilla espanola, an egg, potato and onion omelet ($7), on the list of pinchos. Jamon iberico is also a given ($30), but some of the other options might surprise you. Try the smoked duck drumsticks glazed in za’atar honey ($14), the bone marrow with radish-citrus salad and beef cheek marmalade ($16) or the blowfish tails with Moroccan spices ($13) to understand the restaurant’s modern interpretation of tapas. A larger or hungrier crowd might want to order some paella with shrimp, mussels, clams, chorizo and chicken ($76 for a full order, $38 for a half). Don’t forget the drinks: The wine program focuses on Spanish varietals like tempranillo and garnacha, while the cocktail menu features riffs on the gin and tonic, a perennial favorite in Barcelona and Madrid.
