Foursquare Tips

  • Great tapas and wine
  • Some nice wine offerings, but a bit ambitious on pricing: My glass of Josep Foraster (2011 Catalunya, Conca de Barbera) was $16 ($62/bottle). It's $18.99/bottle at Astor.
  • From 3pm - 7 pm at El Colmado you can feast on $1 oysters and wine while commenting on how "authentic" this place is.
  • Papas bravas are great though they are not 'Bravas' ( spicy). Service kind of slow. But the croquetas are great.
  • Good tapas and wine selection here. I enjoyed the Spanish tortilla and spicy octopus croquetas.
  • Reasonable Happy Hour special -- $11 for 1/2 dozen oysters + glass of the house cava. Rest of the menu is great, including the paella!
  • Window seats with a glass of wine people watching :)
  • The meatballs (Albondigas) were so tasty! It's also spicy, which is even better for me.
  • Amazing food and great wine selection.
  • Pan con tomate!
  • Not bad, good wines, but a little overdone.
  • Terrific food but only have gourmet sodas. If you need your (diet) coke or iced tea fix, you can fill up at the BBQ place next door and bring back (they are OK with it). And refills are free!
  • Grab a seat at the bar and have the wine on draft.
  • Awesome tapas, all the classics and something new
  • The sangria - "La Nuestra Clasica" tastes like more after the first sip.
  • This place inside of Gotham West has tapas and wine.
  • In retrospect, the paella may be the best I've ever tasted.
  • Do order the the paella special. Do not be freaked out by the langoustine.
  • $22 for the small jug of red sangria is a good deal and averages out to three delicious glasses.
  • Fast service, good variety of tapas. Recommend the paella if they have it (usually a special), also the hanger steak. Shrimp was oily. Wines by the glass are okay, nothing to write home about
