tapas in Soho/Tribeca

  • m

Has anyone been to n or Cafe Noir? Does anyone know of
acceptable and not outrageously priced tapas in Soho or
Tribeca? (Flor de Sol has received mixed reviews, as
far as I can tell.)

  1. Go a little north to El Cid on 15th between 8th & 9th.
    Authentic tapas ( great scallops ) at a good price.

          n 66 on crosby is reasonably good tapas, and much
          better (in my experience) than El Cid (the paella
          was pretty dry and uninspired). But you must go
          pretty early in the evening (~7) to actually get
          , otherwise you will end up hovering behind
          people at the bar.

            Sorry about the delay -- thanks for the advice. We
            ended up going to Cafe Noir, which was pretty good
            (if very crowded and noisy), especially the excellent
            -- and cheap! -- rosemary roasted potatoes. Light
            dinner for two with a half-bottle of wine
            (unfortunately, the wine list overcompensated for the
            reasonable food prices) was about $40. Not outrageous,
            but certainly not what I'd call a great deal.
            Considering the neighborhood, though ...
