        Sorry for not putting the name down; Socarrat was the restaurant that was recommended; we'll just have to get there early...Thanks so much...

      2. i have not been, but people have recommended socarrat to me

        1. Socarrat is fantastic. You can do a search on this board and reviews will pop up. But, you must get there early as it only seats about 12 and they don't take reservations. They recently opened a "wine bar" next door which (i THINK) serves paella, but Im not positive. I have not been since they expanded.

            I was very disappointed with the paella at Socarrat. There was no soccarat, among other issues.

              Yeah, I have heard that a few times from different people, but never had a problem any time I have been there (3 or 4 times so far).

              1. re: gutsofsteel

                I've also had univerally great experiences, but I haven't been since they expanded.

            2. We like the Paella @ El Pote on 2nd Ave Midtown. Never been disappointed by the food or service.
