New York City: Boqueria

on August 28, 2011

Boqueria @ 171 Spring Street


I came to this restaurant on a date with Dennis, a man whom I had met at speed dating. Upon sitting down, I already knew that the place looked familiar. CBT and I stumbled upon this restaurant in SOHO on one of our adventures in NYC before we started blogging. Glad I got a chance to come back and reminisce on the good old days.

Blistered Shishito peppers, deep fried with coarse sea salt. Unless you’ve eaten this at Ippudo, don’t bother to get it here. It’s not the same. Not enough crisp and not enough salt. I had to ask for more salt!

Boqueria - Patatas Bravas

Crispy potatoes, “salsa brava,” roasted garlic aioli. The potatoes were good. The salsa was salty and the garlic aioli was muted in flavors. It was just a “safe” carb dish we ordered.

Fried quail eggs and chorizo on toast. Hands down. Delicious, but it’s something I can make at home, so it’s not that special. The seared lamb marinated in lemon and cumin, with “salsa verde” on top was great tasting too. This was probably the most flavorful dish of the items ordered.

Service was great. Water was refilled and servers were attentive to our needs. Relaxing atmosphere and beautiful modern decor and furniture.
