Tablao Tapas Y Restaurante – House of Spain


361 Greenwich St
New York NY 10013
(212) 334-4043

Great date nights leave you feeling like you’ve traveled a little further than the corner bar. To catch some shades of Spain, along with a dose of downtown glamour, head to Tablao in Tribeca. A Spanish family runs the place, so you’ll find warmth and authenticity in equal measure. Walk in the door and you’ll be feeling sophisticated, as smart design makes the most of high ceilings, exposed brick, and artful mirrors. You and your loved one will be looking good, lit just right by banks of candles, with a little color from the lighting effects at the bar. Traditional small plates make perfect sharing. Dig right into tapas temptations like Spanish sausage with fried quail egg, or fresh figs marinated in sherry. For main plates, you can share again, maybe a seafood-celebrating paella, or a charbroiled steak. You’ll appreciate Tablao’s attention to detail when it’s sangria time. Opt for white, with its mix of four fresh berries, and watch as your waiter uncorks a fresh bottle of good wine to top it off. As transporting as all this is, you’ll want to time your visit here for a flamenco night. The restaurant’s name refers to the floor where Spanish dancers perform, and Wednesdays and Fridays you can catch the real thing, with the rhythm of heels perfectly accenting the accompanying drum and guitar. You won’t have to wait until you’re back home to say “¡Olé!”
