Serving some of the tastiest tapas in New York, Barraca in the West Village is the latest restaurant from owner Hector Sanz (Rayuela and Macondo) and is helmed by Chef Jesús Nuñez (formerly of Gastroarte). With an all-Spanish management group and kitchen staff, Barraca is as genuine of a Spanish restaurant as you can get that’s best experienced with a copious amount of small plates and sangria.

Tapas Galore Chef Jesús Nuñez' menu reflects his love for art as well as his experience growing up in Spain. Each dish is so beautifully presented that no one can blame you if you take a picture before you eat. Our three favorites include the Huevo Relleno de Atun (deviled eggs stuffed with tuna, béchamel and bread crumbs), the Croquetas de Setas y Pollo (chicken & oyster mushroom croquettes), and last but not least the Coca de Salmon Ahumado (similar to a Spanish pizza, this one with smoked salmon, onion marmalade, arugula, cherry tomatoes & salmon eggs). Order one of their 6 types of paella and top if off with a pitcher of sangria.

Inside Barraca "La Barraca" was a traveling theater group that toured around the rural parts of Spain. As such, the interior of Barraca recreates the backstage of a theater, while the atmosphere of the restaurant also reflects the energy one would expect from a fiesta. In true Spanish form, Barraca is open from 5pm until 3am every day (with brunch from 11am-4pm on weekends only), so bring your friends, order some tapas, drink some sangria, and enjoy life.

Bring your friends, order some tapas, drink some sangria, and enjoy life.

Tip #1

Bring at least four friends; the more dishes you can order and share, the better!

Tip #2

During Spring and Summer, you’ll be able to enjoy outdoor seating.

Tip #3

Again, for you late-night diners, you can enjoy tapas, paella, and sangria until 3am.
