This place was incredible. Satisfying, extremely flavorful dishes accompanied by good wine, attentive waitstaff and an intimate setting, my ideal NYC restaurant. We ordered a bunch of tapas, including the razor clams (a must!!!), octopus and brussle sprouts (a staple). Everything was super flavorful and left us in awe. Some of the reviews exclaim things to be too salty but we found it just perfect. It’s a cozy joint in a cozy neighborhood and we found ourselves leaving already planning our next visit. It can get a little smoky but that’s because they have an open kitchen, which I found kind of cool as you can see everything being made fresh right in front of you.
