In The Press

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.”

What to drink when you're not drinking? Our Valencia Sunrise cocktail! 🍹🥰 Made with @seedlipdrinks, the world's first non-alcoholic distilled spirit, this 'Refrescante' perfectly balances Seedlip Grove with Orange-Apricot Marmalade, Fresh Lemon, and a pinch of Cinnamon to produce a bright and refreshing cocktail — the perfect companion to a warm summer night.

Straining to find a good pun to use for this picture of a delicious group feast at Penn Quarter, but we're coming up a bit muddled, and to be honest, we're a little shaken up about it.

We don't want to stir up anything too old-fashioned, but we also need to make sure that it doesn't come off as too bitter.

Anyone in the spirit to give it a shot? Or come up with a twist? Extra points for a great punchline... #CaptionThis

This fluke is no fluke. 
The elegant balance of flavors in our Crudo de Lenguado is something worth savoring. 
Fluke crudo with green beans, basil, Marcona almonds, and citrus. 😍

The sun is shining, the grass is greening, and the grills are firing up! 🔥🔥 No better time to throw on a few of the hottest veggies of the season (in every sense of the word): Charred shishito peppers - perfect on their own with a sprinkling of coarse sea salt or to top off one of our shishito-infused tequila margaritas!
