This lively, much-loved tapas place brings a bit of downtown cool to the Upper East Side, with nicely spiced patatas bravas (fried potatoes in tomato sauce), tender slices of jamon ibérico (cured ham) and rich pulpo a la plancha (grilled octopus). Head chef Marc Vidal also creates an exquisite seafood paella. Wash it down with a pitcher of excellent sangria.

“Named for one of Barcelona’s largest open-air markets, this modern restarant — all marble, slate and light wood– offers contemporary takes on traditional Spanish small plates.”
~ Where Traveler

“Manhattan’s third Boqueria “tapas bar,” recently launched on the Upper East Side, channels the easygoing, Barcelona-inspired vibe from the mini-chain’s Flatiron and Soho locations. And it’s likely to be with us for a long, long time.”
~ NY Post

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. .
