Socarrat Paella Bar
259 W 19 St (Chelsea)
Sophie's back from her travels, and that means girls night pig-out. Sophie, Erin, Jonna & I decided on Socarrat paella bar, located in Chelsea. On a Tuesday night there was an hour+ wait at 7:30pm, so we sat at the bar and had wine and tapas to start.
Another winner were the croquettes, tiny nuggets of pureed chorizo, mushroom and potato fried to a deep brown - surprisingly good and crispy on the outside.
We also ordered a giant sirloin empanada and sardines.
I'd definitely go back but not for the paella. Tapas and dessert are winners here.
