Wanted to know of other tapas restaurants in NYC - I have taken my family to Alta and we had a great time and really enjoyed the food. Has anyone heard of Pipas Tapas Bar or other recommendations.

    I haven't been to Pipa in a while, but had a good experience there years ago. The room is pleasingly baroque, if that's important. Here are a few other options:

    Casa Mono
    Txikito
    Tia Pol
    El Quinto Pino
    Boqueria

      I love all of those restaurants but they aren't really that much like Alta. All good places to dine, though. Alta is less actual Spanish tapas and more creative small plates. The menu is all over the place.
