Barcelona Tapas in White Plains

I walked by today and saw the menu, which looks very authentic. I believe this was the space that was going to have arepas and other Latin American food. Now it’s full-fledged Spanish. Has anyone been there?

    What street is it on?

      Are you sure it's called Barcelona? That's a chain with locations in CT, and I don't see a WP location listed on their website in White Plains (or anything else named Barcelona when I searched on Google).

        There is a blurb about this restaurant in the new Westchester magazine. It states that it is called Barcelona but has no affiliation with the ones in Connecticut.

          Well, that's not going to cause any confusion!

          It's on Mamaroneck Ave. near Martine. I think it was also a Peruvian restaurant for a while. It's a very narrow long space.

          There doesn't seem to be a website--yet. When I searched, all I kept getting was the Greenwich Barcelona.

            Next to the salad place? I think the previous incarnation was Milonga Arepas and Tapas.

              Yes, exactly. Could Mr. Milonga still be the owner???

                It seems like a possibility, since he did tapas at Milonga. I'll have to look at the magazine article and see what it says about that.

              What? I can't hear you! ;)

              I'm guessing that negates our theory of Mr. Milonga maintaining ownership.

                Hi all! I would just like to clarify a few things. The new Barcelona Tapas and Wine, located on 74 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains is a new Traditional Spaniard tapas restaurant, which is not affiliated with Barcelona from Greenwich or Milonga. It is managed by a different Spaniard owner, the tapas and paella are great, and after 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays it becomes a lounge until 2am. There is now a website for the restaurant: http://www.barcelonawhiteplains.com

                    Has the Barcelona owner had restaurants previously in Westchester or NYC? Just curious.
