Directions: 6 to Bleeker, BDFM to Broadway-Lafayette
Must Get: Bacon wrapped dates

I’ve walked by this place so many times, but only stepped foot here yesterday. It’s definitely been my loss for the past six years. Every dish we had was good– bacon wrapped dates and almonds, pork adobo toast, duck breast toast (better than the pork ones), and potatos bravas. The bacon wrapped dates come five an order, so make sure you get at least two per person. When we ordered our second plate, the waiter looked like he was waiting for us to do that, must happen all the time. (Who are we kidding? Bacon wrapped anything is amazing.).

The next time I go back I’d try their paella and sangria; everyone around us seemed to be doing it. :)

NEW YORK: Macondo

157 E Houston, New York, NY 10002
212 473 9900

Price: Reasonable
Rating: Great!
Directions: FV to 2nd Ave
Reservations: You don’t need them
Must Get: calamari

You have to eat here. Their tapas are some of the best I’ve had in a while. I love the combinations of food from different countries in South America- arepas, ceviche, etc etc. All the dishes I’ve had here from the two times I’ve been have been great, but my favorites are the calamari and the skirt steak flatbread.

The drinks, decor, and staff are on par with the food as well. I don’t think my water ever reached the half full/ empty level.

This hidden, second floor restaurant was decent, but nothing special.  I expected more out of Asian tapas.  You will not find me back at this place for a second time.
