“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.
“In Spain, nos vamos de vermut (“let’s go have a vermouth”) is code for a leisurely midafternoon snack—something simple and salty, like canned mussels or potato chips, accompanied by a glass of vermouth, Zack Bezunartea, director of operations for Boqueria in New York and Washington, D.C., explains.
“Tapas eatery Boqueria debuts its third New York City location tonight, now delivering tasty plates of Spanish eats to the Upper East Side. Barcelona native Chef Marc Vidal continues his nuanced execution of classic small plates at the new outpost, which offers intimate seating for 70 in the cozy dining room awash in golds and beiges.”
“Not everyone is lucky enough to have a Spanish-style siesta after lunch. But Dupont’s new Manhattan tapas transplant, Boqueria, could change that for D.C. diners. The month-old restaurant launched lunch service last week, with a menu of sandwiches, salads and tapas that practically demands a post-meal nap.”
