You know those old spots in Little Italy where the tables are usually filled with either tourists or groups who have been sitting in the same spot every Wednesday night since LBJ took office? There’s a Spanish version of this, and it’s called Sevilla. Here, servers in tuxedos carry pots of seafood and paella to groups sitting in brown leather booths while the bartender answers a landline and tells people on the other end what the current wait is like. You could come here for a nice group dinner, or sit at the bar and share a carafe of Spanish wine and some tapas with a friend.

Mermaid Oyster Bar
We love the Mermaid restaurants, but an oyster bar? I guess fifteen or so varieties qualify you, but we were hoping for a deeper raw bar and a little more excitement. Where's the oyster inspiration?
The Malt House
The Malt House is one of the least-worst pubs in Greenwich Village. If you’re in the area, and you need a beer and some french fries, stop in.
El Toro Blanco
El Toro Blanco is a trendy spot that’s Perfect For some Action At The Bar and a slightly less Raucous Party Atmosphere than you’d get a few avenues over in the Meat Packing District. The food just isn’t all that good.

This restaurant/wine bar in Chelsea from the folks who brought you Tia Pol and Txikito delivers solid authentic Spanish eats, wine, and sangria.
