Socarrat Paella Bar
Posted by A Californian on 09/02/2008
I only lilke paella cooked by my mother (who is now gone) or served in a couple of restaurants I know in Spain. I'm looking for the right amount of oil, saffron color, crust and ingredients. I saw the notice of this restaurant's opening in the NY Times and planned to visit it while on a trip to NYC a couple of weeks ago. The first night I went I ate tapas that were wonderfulbut my eyes kept looking at the paellas I saw coming out of the kitchen. I went back two nights later for a paella and I was not disappointed. I had the Valenciana which is my favorite and this one was authentic with snails, rabbit and pork ribs. Yum. Secolnd only to my mothersnow I can have paella and not fly all the way to Spain. Thank you Lolo!

Went here a few weeks ago, and just gave my third recommendation. The place is small, and a little noisy, but the food was great. Ordered the fried artichokes - they came out quickly - hot, sprinkled with lemon & salt, and not at all greasy. The paella itself took a long time to appear, but it was worth it. The promised socarrat at the bottom of the pan was amazing - full of crunchy goodness. I love this place!
