In The Press

“The 164-seat stunner features a modern-looking dining room straight out of Barcelona, complete with swaying palms, abstract artwork, and lots of Spanish reds served at its thick marbled bar.”
~ Eater DC

“Grab a group and head out for Spanish tapas, wine and cocktails at the newest location of Boqueria. The Penn Quarter address features signature rotisserie chicken, ribs and pork shank along with a chef’s counter for elevated dining.”
~ DC Refined

“This is one of our favorite Spanish restaurants in D.C. and its seamless integration into a new neighborhood only makes it feel more like a District staple. The quality of ingredients, the integrity of place, and hospitable kindness are a reason this spot has doubled—and why loyal patrons and new customers alike will line up for a snack, a drink, and a paella the size of your entire table.”

Lively, Barcelona-style tapas bar in NYC and Washington D.C.

Anchovies vary widely in quality. Our favorites come from Cantabria, a region along Spain's northern coast. It fronts the Bay of Biscay, a gulf of strong currents and waves that make the silvery fish especially fatty. Once caught, the fish are filleted by hand. Those destined for canning are aged and salt-cured, then lightly rinsed and packed in olive oil. Those chosen for boquerones (white anchovies) are lightly pickled and marinated in a vinegar-olive oil blend, which gives them a flavor that is a perfect balance of tangy and rich.  On the menu at Boqueria: Boquerones - pickled white anchovies, orange, olive oil, black pepper, chips. 😋

Cochinillo is one of Spain's most historic and iconic dishes. This slow-roasted suckling pig cooked over an open flame is known for producing meat so tender and succulent that most people have to do a double-take before realizing it's pork. With a perfectly-cooked layer of crispy skin to hold in the meat's natural juices, one flavorful bite is enough to transport you to the historic eateries of Spain; savoring a culinary tradition that stems back generations. .
