Jamon Ibérico (Iberian Ham) in the city?

A recent NYT article ( said that Jamon Ibérico (Iberian Ham) would be imported to the US for the first time sometime soon. Anyone know of any restaurants that are (or will be) serving up this delicacy?

        thanks! seems a little out of date though (considering they only had the one leg). anyone have current information?

        1. re: lawstud

          Dean and Deluca has more than one leg ( they had a few when I was there). I guess the best thing is to call and check. I think the stores and restaurants are all waiting for the customs to clear (which might have already happened)

            D&D still had it when I went a few weeks ago, BTW.

            I've also seen it advertised as a special outside Bar Carrera in the East Village.

      2. agata and valentina on 79th and 1st ave

          Formaggio Essex at the Essex market also has it

        2. I would take a guess that D'Espana would probably carry it.

              they do and its fantastic, but ~$100-120/lb for hand cut

            2. SInce I sounded like you're looking for a restaurant and not a store, I think Bar Boulud has it as one of its charcuterie plates.
