From the deep expertise of the owner to choose a wine based on your preferences to the food every time, I never tire of visiting this restaurant. The pulpo, the jamon, cheese and local market vegetables deliciously prepared allow you to linger over quiet conversations...More

I have been here before and thought it was pretty good. After being back here tonight for the expensive 'jamon Iberico' I have been able to resolve to never come here again. Good luck with your mediocre food :)

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
