Foursquare Tips

  • I would recommend this place to anyone. I've had tapas all over the world, but this is special. Excellent service, small place, medium priced. GO!
  • Definitely get a jargaria, the spanish cousin of the jargarita
  • eat the Spanish prosciutto equivalent
  • Apple and cheese
  • Looking for a low key or intimate place for dinner? Pata Negra offers an excellent selection of tapas and wine. I recommended the octopus, morcilla and patitas.
  • Love the suckling pig special tapas, super nice staff!
  • One of the most authentic tapas bars in NYC. Simple, well prepared food, inexpensive. Octopus with potatoes tastes like Spain. Good selection of cheese and meats. Tiny place, great service, a treat.
  • Amazing place. Order the pata negra, its the real deal. Pop by for a drink, stay for the food, visit for a night cap - great all around!
  • Best, most authentic Spanish in town. And I know what I am talking about :-)
  • Cozy with a delicious sherry list and Jamon Serrano. Great date spot.
  • Enjoy the surprisingly large-sized Spanish tapas and ask your waiter for a wine recommendation they all seem to be wine connoisseurs. The space is tiny, so expect to wait for a table.
  • Pincho pincho pincho de tortilla, pincho pincho pincho de jamn.
  • The pata negra melts in your mouth.
  • Cute little tapas place, garlic shrimps were great!
  • Gambas al ajillo, ask for it with half the salt. The mercado paella was a treat. The big surprise was the sangria, refreshing and well balanced (not sweet). Pata negra ham, pricy but good.
  • Great cheese plates and a solid selection of Spanish wines.
  • Loved the octopus and the patitas!! The manchego felt a bit like the one I buy at Asda back in the UK, but the jamon iberico saved the night :) please add a more full body red on your wine list.
  • Secret gem!
  • Get the 3 ham selection. It's 40 dollars but so worth it! Best Serrano ever. Also good sangria and ahi tuna
  • A little overpriced and the owner protested personally at a 15% tip on a big check. Very bad form. Food was lovely though
