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.

El Quinto Pino
This restaurant/wine bar in Chelsea from the folks who brought you Tia Pol and Txikito delivers solid authentic Spanish eats, wine, and sangria.
Tia Pol is a Chelsea tapas spot that’s a great move for early-in-the-game dates. Have some sangria and some small plates.
