Socarrat is cozy, authentic, lively, and the food is great! The exposed brick, long communal table, and paintings really adds to the charm of this Spanish resto.

I must caution you though- if you go at prime dinner time, 8p-9p- expect a bit of a wait. They don’t take ressies. The good news is, you can always go next door to the adjoining tapas/wine bar until they call your name.

CHOW FAVES:

TAPAS-

-Gambas Al Ajillo: Shrimp with garlic and hot peppers- It was tasty but a little oily.

-Croquetas: Crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside.

-Calamar A La Plancha: Squid with parsley and garlic- Seasoned well and the squid was tender- not rubbery.

PAELLA: The STAR of the evening!

I don’t know where to begin- it’s pure perfection! It’s like eating candy- you can’t get enough. Oh, and the paella is so authentic……the well seasoned, crunchy and soft rice with loads of fish, meat, and veggies. It’s insanely delicious! There are about 6 kinds of paellas to choose from (2 types of seafood, veggie, meat, pork+game, and a combo)…So what’s your pleasure?! This was mine last week….

-Paella Socarrat: Chunks of chicken, fish, shrimp and beef- Sometimes we have them replace the beef with duck.

-Paella de Pescado and Mariscos: Chunks of fish, shrimp, cuttle fish, mussels, clams, squid and scallops

SIP: Good wine list and even better Sangria!
