Another adventure of ours in NYC was, naturally, the first night – we basically left the Thompson, and walked a few blocks down until we got to this charming Tapa’s spot. After a long 5-hour flight from LA, we were craving a good meal. This spot was just lovely – the windows were all pulled back so it felt like you were sitting outside to people-watch, and they played lovely Spanish music which was great for the ambiance.
My husband remembered having visited the spot in college, and ordered a favorite of his: Candied and Grilled Baked Brie. It was the most unusual and different way I’ve ever seen Brie prepared! Delicious, but definitely better as a dessert than appetizer. We also enjoyed the Ravioli with peas, Buttered Gambas, Lobster with Lentils (my favorite!), and, of course, Seafood Paella. I included a nice after-shot of what we did to the dish… This definitely reminds me of the cooking class I took in Barcelona two years ago, and I need to pull out that rusty paella pan somewhere and give it another try…
