An elegant hole in the wall and great find. We stumbled on to this while looking for a place to eat near Union Square. We had the scallops, the dorada and the salad with marcona almonds. All superb. Great service. I'd go back.

Lots of creativity, and things you aren't likely to see other places. Razor clams and bone marrow are sublime. We took an out-of-town foodie there on Saturday for a light lunch. Good news is you can walk in without a reservation.

This place has a great staff and great food. The only problem with the place is it was so tasty I overindulged. There is a real variety of menu choices and as with any tapas place, a great chance to share with your friends.

1 dinner and 1 lunch here, not just because it was next door to our hotel; Inn at the Irving Place, but also because it was just superb. We were lucky to get a table even though it was Monday evening, so remember to reserve....More

This was so good! Perfect! 2 tapas each person was perfect! Had the sweet breads, oxtail, chorizo noodles, pork belly, all were just as good if not better than I had in Barcelona! Desert chocolate something better than gelato in Milan!
