    We visited this tapas restaurant in NYC recently and had mixed feelings about the experience. We ordered a variety of dishes including seafood paella, oysters, and some cocktails. The food was decent, though it didn’t quite live up to our expectations – the flavors were somewhat underwhelming for a tapas spot. The atmosphere inside was uncomfortably warm, which made the dining experience less enjoyable. To add to the quirkiness, our waiter seemed quite surprised when we finished everything on our plates – a reaction that was a bit puzzling. Overall, it was an okay visit, but there’s definitely room for improvement in both the food quality and the overall dining environment.

    This was the official NYC restaurant/bar my friend stopped at on our trip. It was one of the few that was open that late on a Wednesday night. We actually came in about 30 minutes before the kitchen closed, so we rush-ordered whatever looked the most delicious. Since it was late at night and only a few people were in there, the restaurant was lit up with minimal lights, giving it a very cool, vibe-y feel. Because this was a tapas bar, all the dishes we ordered were shareables. The food came out fast and the waitress was nice and check-in on us a few times throughout as well. Roasted Beef Bone Marrow w/ Dijon Mustard & Garlic Bread (2/5): This one was a bit disappointing. I love bone marrow, and it's one of those dishes that I would immediately order if available on the menu, as I did here. Unfortunately, the was barely any marrow. The photo looks a bit deceiving because it was only a thin layer of marrow on the bone. The bread was also too hard for my preference. Usually, if there was more marrow to spread, it would pair well with a crispy thin bread slice. However, in this instance, there was barely any marrow and the bread was overly hard. Wild Mushroom Croquettes w/ Truffle Aioli (4/5): This was a yummy bite. I thought it was slightly greasy for my preference. The truffle aioli paired so well with the crispy croquette. My friend absolutely loved it as is. Baby Lamb Chops w/ Mint Mustard Coulis (5/5): Incredibly cooked. A slight crust and the meat was so flavorful and soft to the bite. Not much to say here. It was delicious. Seared Sesame-Crusted Tuna w/ Ponzu & Yellow Sriracha Aioli (5/5): The tuna crust was perfectly seared and paired so well with the aioli and ponzu. The tuna tasted fresh too. I love the tanginess of the sauces and the tartness from a squeeze of lemon on the fish.

    The paella has no flavor at all… we doubt that the chef didn't put any salt in it, it tastes like plain white rice. The seafood has no flavor either. The baby lamb chops are good though. We came here because we saw an array of advertisements for their paella on social media, and now we're regretting🤪🤪
