Where to Find It: 53 West 19th Street New York, NY

Food Group: Spanish and Tapas

How Much to Fork Over: $$-$$$

The Grade: A+

Faves: Quesos y Embutidos; tortillas espanola; wine

Peeves: Small tables; expensive wine list

The Jibba Jab:  Almost like a replica of eateries in Spain, this cozy restaurant is sure to please.  Although the wine was a bit pricey, I enjoyed sipping on the Vina Alberdi Reserva, which was recommended by the friendly bartender.  The quesos y embutidos (cheese and meat plate) and tortilla espanola (Spanish omelet) were made to perfection and were so delicious that I had to chew every bite so slowly.  I would definitely make it back to this place again for brunch and try their lunch and dinner.
