Mouth-Watering Tapas in the Flatiron District at Boqueria

Tapas side dish with shrimp, strawberry and mango

Famous for its flavor and epicurean delights, taste the flavor of Barcelona in Manhattan. And even better–the Flatiron district (where the MAve is anchored). Our boutique hotel guests love the flair of this fun-loving Flatiron tapas bar strung with pendant lights and chic leather banquettes. And as an NYC guest, if you’re up for making friends–opt for a communal table that runs down the center of the dining room.

“The room (along with the uniforms of the competent, terminally perky waitstaff) is carefully coordinated in tones of toffee, beige and sandy brown.” – New York Magazine.

Offering a wide variety of “market fresh” specials, feast your eyes and lips on the fried quail eggs and chorizo on roasted bread or the mushroom and ham croquettes. Traditional churros come with a thick hot chocolate for dipping–a perfect plate for sharing.

A surfeit of tasty Spanish wines garnish the menu from vinos blancos to vinos tintos, dubbed elegant, earthy, or powerful. A good variety by the glass or by the bottle complement the exquisite flavors with perennial favorites like the Datiles con Beicon, or the Patatas Bravas. A Spanish take using all fresh ingredients, chefs use suppliers and local farmers through the Union Square Greenmarket.

Boqueria is a 12-minute walk from the MAve Hotel, past Madison Square Park, located at 53 West 19th Street (between 5th Ave and 6th Ave).

If you’re tired from a day of shopping or wondering the streets, call ahead and order takeout, then bring it back to the MAve and relax.

Takeout at Boqueria is available from noon to midnight, Thursday thru Saturday, and noon to 11pm on Sunday thru Wednesday.

Call: 212.255.4160, and check out the menu ahead of time here.
