Channeling Barcelona, this expansive, welcoming tapas joint serves both classic and classic-with-a-twist morsels, dexterously assembled in the open kitchen. Order a beer-and-pear sangria and feast on standouts such as abondigas (Colorado lamb meatballs with tomato sauce and sheep’s milk cheese), mushroom and Serrano ham croquettes, and a fine selection of hard and soft cheeses.

You'll find other Boquerias in the Flatiron District, in the Upper East Side, and in Brooklyn.
