      unsure about the hours and haven't been to 100 Montaditos. maybe tomorrow, though.

      i'm most interested to walk into Toro.

      unrelated, Plan B in Soho has recently become Barca.

    2. Well I didn't make it to the tapas trail promo because I wasn't feeling well.
      But- I did go to 100 montaditos wed early evening. That place is crazy cheap! The "chapata" bread was our favorite, kind of like ciabatta. I had the tortilla, one with not very exciting kinda too oily grilled vegetables, and an arugala cripsy onion honey mustard one which was my favorite (i had them keep the blue cheese, not my thing). The tortilla one was also good, although it seems weird to have tortilla on a sandwich... My friend was thrilled with her meaty selections, she had one with jamon, one with chorizo, and two others i'm forgetting.
      Drinks are crazy cheap- like $4! The tinto de verano blanco was a white wine based drink that was refreshing, and also a decent sangria. My share was about $20 after tax/tip/etc.
      for two drinks and three sandwiches (!)

      I would say best for non vegetarians but I'll go back. Busy when we were there around 7pm but not deafening.

        sadly, i didn't make it either, but glad to read about 100 Montaditos. i see that Plan B in Nolita has changed to Barca. i believe the owners are the same. maybe it's just a smart rebranding. after having been to Spain recently, it's frustrating to see the cost of tapas in New York.

          Estoy enamorada con espana! Tenia algunos viajes a barcelona y madrid pero necesito a regresar prontisimo....

          100 montaditos reminded me a lot of the mini chain "museo del jamon" in madrid if you ever went there.... And there was a calamari bocadillo which i don't quite understand but if the craving strikes 100 montaditos has you covered.
          And yes, even with the $ to € tapas are sooo much cheaper in spain...(don't get me started on the wine....)
