Our main reason for visiting NYC was to visit Mercado Little Spain! We have been fans of Jose Andres, Albert Adria, and Ferran Adria for a long time. We've also been fortunate to dine at The in Miami and most recently Enigma in Barcelona Spain.
When I heard about the opening of Mercado Little Spain I badly wanted to attend but scheduling wouldn't allow it. Finally, we were in line to enter the space.
The staff welcomed us in with wide smiles and while not every area was open yet our visit was so worth it!
Walking around the space we read the menus, watched the chefs cook, and tried to decide how we were going to control ourselves after our big lunch.
Our first selections were patatas bravas (potatoes with a spicy sauce and aioli), Iberico de Belotta jamon, and a coca (a flat bread type pizza). After a long wait, we also enjoyed a Vermut each (blanco) along with the most amazing Paella!
Before leaving for the night, we purchased some churros and chocolate to enjoy back at the hotel after we walked off some of the food!
I can't even begin to tell you how badly I want to visit again and try out their newly opened restaurants as well as some of the kiosks we enjoyed!
