New York City 2023 Travel Log: Day 3 — A Glorious Feast of Spanish Tapas at Boqueria

Monday, November 13, 2023
My brother got us a reservation for the Chef's Menu at at Boqueria, so for our last family dinner in NYC, we indulged in a glorious feast of Spanish tapas:

Tabla de Quesos y Embutidos: Manchego, Caña de Cabra, Jamón Serrano, Chorizo Ibérico, served with olives and pan con tomate

Patatas Bravas: Crispy potatoes, salsa brava, pimentón, garlic allioli

Croquetas de Setas: Creamy mushroom croquettes with truffle allioli

Croquetas de Jamón: Creamy Jamón croquettes with quince purée

Dátiles con Beicon: Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds and Valdeón blue cheese

Brócoli con Ajo Blanco: Roasted broccoli, Marcona almond ajo blanco, sumac, raisins, and mint 

Bruselas con Chorizo: Brussels sprouts, Chorizo Palacios, lemon, and chives

Gambas al Ajillo: Shrimp, garlic, brandy, lobster reduction, and Guindilla pepper in olive oil

Paella de Mariscos: Bomba rice, monkfish, sepia, squid, shrimp, clams, mussels, saffron, salsa verde

Churros Clásicos: Traditional cinnamon-dusted fried dough with dulce de leche

Indeed, an epic culinary journey to Spain and back. Standouts for me were the patatas bravas, the croquetas de setas, the gambas al ajillo, and the paella de mariscos. I guess this just begs the question: Why do I not eat more Spanish tapas?
