Does anyone know the name of the spanish place in the small office building on Wall St? Is it worth going? Thanks!!

    Meigas? Yes, it's very good for upscale Spanish.

    But don't forget to go around the corner to LaPaella for tapas and sangria. Also excellent.

      Just an FYI La Paella is closing soon, tp be replaced with what I assume will be a greek restaurant called Taberna.

        I can't believe La Paella has lasted as long as it did.

          Awwwwww. That's a shame.

          Thanks for the heads up, lovesublime. I guess Larchmont will have to be my destination for tapas.

              No, lovesublime, I've never been to Barcelona. Is it the one in Greenwich?

              I've only been to LaPaella, and will very much miss them. They were excellent both times I went.

              There is a new place in Larchmont, and that will be it for tapas, that I can see.

                Its the same as the one in Sono and fairfield..so yes, same menu.
                Chefboy, I walked past La Paella about 2 weeks ago. They were open but there was a sign in the window saying TABERNA, COMING SOON. I too am sad, I liked La Paella. I guess I just didnt go there often enough to save this local gem :(

            That's terrible! Where did you hear this, and what is the full story?

              LaPaella is not closing. I'm told (by a friend of the owner) that they are opening Taberna on the outskirts of Bridgeport. It will be more Nuevo/Pan Latino. I have not seen the sign myself, but marketing never seemed to be their strong suit; I wouldn't be surprised if it does not reference the new/different location. They sure can cook though! And, I love the wine selection too. Great Place!

                Wanda, I'm glad to hear this.

                Can you advise the owner to edit the sign? Perhaps they can add:

                'Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.'
