Looking for the best tapas in NYC to try this weekend. I've read a lot about Tia Pol... Any help? Thanks in advance.

        I've been to both Casa Mono and Xunta, great places. I'd also suggest Sala on the Bowery at (I think) Great Jones. Tues-thurs are half price tapas. Last summer, just back from a year in Madrid, I went once a week. Four of us would eat a huge meal for $30. Not super traditional but pretty damn good.

            See my recent post on Las Ramblas. Loved it! Search on Manhattan board.

              El Cid in Chelsea is low key, very affordable, and makes a mean Sangria.

                    I must go with Casa Mono as well. If you do go there, you must get the Mono Sundae.

                      Add to this Pinxtos on Greenwitch St which has Basque menu and really iny place .

                      Sol y Solera on Amsterdam and 82nd ? which is quite open and great place to be summer nights if you live in the 'nabe

                      Then there in N on Crosby - Which is really small.

                        Pipa in the ABC Carpet bldg (Broadway & 19th) is good but also a great bar and atmosphere. Very comfortable.

                          Hmmm...second Solera and Tia Pol. Also a fan of this place is Hells Kitchen...Andalucia, I think it's called?
