Huertas, New York, NY

Huertas Restaurant Review

: Lodged smack in the center of a bustling East Village swath of bars and restaurants, Huertas stands out for its Basque-style tapas and pintxos from former Maialino chef Jonah Miller. In the front room and at the bar, it recalls a sort of Spanish version of a dim sum place, with waiters roaming around with small plates that diners can nab: crispy lamb meatballs; slices of creamy potato-laden Spanish tortillas on bread; and grilled octopus. Patatas bravas is fairly standard, but the boquerones (white anchovies) are delicate and worth savoring. Meanwhile, the back dining room serves the Menu del Dia, a changing fixed-price four-course meal where you might be offered oil-poached hake or roasted veal breast, followed by a sweet stuffed empanada for dessert. The long list of Spanish wines has some affordable bottles, and there’s also vermouth on tap.
