Spanish | East Village 28/30 for food on the Zagat. Average meal $79.
This is a bit of a unique experience where you sit around the chef who prepares the meals right in front of you. Here are the links to the Zagat and the Yelp reviews. Should be fun.
ZAGAT East Village "cooler-than-cool" tasting bar from Jack and Grace Lamb purveying "dazzling" Franco-Spanish small plates assembled by "expert" chefs; it's "exciting to watch" and the "minuscule" setting lends "intimacy", but be aware that a "big bill" caps the experience.
