Yum Paella

According to New York Magazine, Boqueria is supposed to have the best Paella in the city. Gosh I hope they’re wrong. I mean, the paella was good, but if that was the best paella in the city, then the rest of the city must be lacking in some amazing paella. After the hour long wait for a table (we snagged two seats at the bar and had some tapas), it was kind of a let down. I mean, it was alright, the rice was nice…but…it wasn’t really anything special. Nor was the Serrano ham on toast that everyone was ordering (that’s what I get for following the masses), although the toast rubbed with garlic and fresh tomato was a nice touch. The lamb skewers were a nice tasty bite. However, there is one thing that will keep me coming back to Boqueria again and again (and no NY mag, it’s not the paella)…they have this amazing dish…Xipirones Y Xocao…baby squid a la plancha with hazelnut and a cocoa nib vinaigrette…just…YUM…like…v. v. v. delicious. It was so simple and pure, and the it was just oh so good. I still want to try the suckling pig croquette…sooo…next time! hehe. Overall…the paella was good, but I have to believe there’s better in the city because it would be depressing otherswise, but the baby squid a la plancha is a must have…just…soooo goood…

JUST GO ELSEWHERE - OR BRING EARPLUGS AND PLAN TO TEXT INSTEAD OF TALK. Went with a friend for early dinner (6 pm). Noise level was unbearable, louder than a heavy metal rock concert. The 20-somethings at our communal table sensibly were…

Not what it used to be

Went there July 22nd. Very busy, nice crowd & atmosphere. The food however was not what I had become accustomed to at Boqueria. I had been to both the Flatiron and Soho branches at least a dozen times and had always enjoyed it there. I…

Tips
  • Menu items are sized on three tiers: Tapas for small tasting ($7), mid-range media-raciones ($11) and entree-sized raciones ($27).
  • Lunch cravings can be satisfied at work with Monday thru Friday delivery from 12pm-3pm.
  • Of the four sangrias, skip the fizzy white to gamble on the buzzed-about beer-infused rendition. Or choose from a 50-bottle wine list. A glass of the deep red Onix ($9) has nice hints of black cherry.
  • Check the rotating menu of cured meats for jamon Iberico, a rare specialty that comes from acorn-fed pigs.
  • Lunch offers salads, bocatas (sandwiches) and cocas (open-face sandwiches).
