Sangria 46 Restaurant Review

: This convivial Theater District Spanish spot aims to feed the pre-theater crowd at a less than Latin pace. The list of heavy entrées --- especially the massive seafood paella --- may be tempting, but the best bet is with the long list of small plates. Tapas come fast and furious. Sautéed asparagus and spinach topped with melted mozzarella and goat cheese is a fine start, as are the fried coconut-battered shrimp in orange-horseradish sauce. Caldo gallego soup with potato, collard greens, white beans and Serrano ham is another pleasing dish, and don’t forget about other traditional items, like paella Valenciana with saffron rice, clams, mussels, shrimp, calamari and chorizo. In terms of wine, there’s an impressive selection of Spanish varietals, as well as lethal portions of sangría, including several pricey types buoyed by Spanish brandy, port and Grand Marnier. The boisterous crowds filling the place at peak hours are a testament to their efficacy.
