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.”

“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.”
