Socarrat Paella Bar Restaurant Review

: Socarrat Paella Bar upped its game by bringing on chef Jesus Nunez. The Madrileño kitchen wizard had made a name for himself in the molecular gastronomy world, but he’s also right at home cooking up well-executed traditional Spanish fare. Case in point: creamy croquetas, almond-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, and nicely charred octopus are standouts, washed down with the cava sangría or a bottle of crisp Albariño from the affordable wine list. Do your palate a favor and order the pork belly, which arrives in the form of a small block and is crispy on top and tender inside. And then, of course, there are the paellas. The seafood version (lobster, scallops and calamari) and the hearty lamb and short rib paella are worth any overindulgence. As for dolce, the flan and cheesecake are a sweet way to top off a fine Spanish dining experience.
