“In coastal parts of Spain, paella is often finished with fresh shellfish, unsurprisingly, but access to ingredients and local tastes often dictate the finished product as in Boqueria’s (New York) massive “brunch paella” with chicken confit, pork belly, and sauteed kale topped with fried eggs.”
“A hefty well-photographed volume from Boqueria, a New York-based group of restaurants, shows the way with toasts and the stuff that can go on top, then segues from tapas into salads,eggs, vegetables, rice and noodles, seafood, meat and poultry, desserts and drinks, with a limited, well-chosen selection of recipes in each chapter.”
“Head to Boqueria (any of the NYC locations) to check out their new Las Islas wine list, with offerings from the Balearic and Canary Islands. “They are totally unique and immediately attention-grabbing. It’s Spain, but it’s not,” said Kieran Chavez, beverage manager, Boqueria restaurants.
