Le Qualite Tasca
This cozy restaurant with less than 10 tables is the place to try food from Spain’s northern region of León. The size and atmosphere might remind you of squeezing into your friend’s tiny Manhattan living room for a potluck, but the patatas bravas, meats and cheese, and cheesecake are way better than anyone could make using a tiny gas stove. Le Qualite’s standout dish is their smooth, salty foie gras that comes with a sweet, caramelized sauce made from Canary Island plátanos. Space is limited, so make a reservation in advance.
