Description: Socarrat Nolita's ambience denotes feelings of warmth, comfort and hospitality. Building on its sister restaurant's identity as a small, intimate space comprised primarily of one large communal table, the restaurant also offers banquette, bar and table seating. Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette. Socarrat Nolita also offers several tapas, wines by the glass, Spanish desserts, and sangria.

Guitars, percussion, dancing and singing fill the room with folklore and a mysterious art form (uniquely from Spain) that originated in 1895 until the early 1900s, however, it still continues on in current-day society. Locals and visitors of NYC can experience Flamenco de España every Tuesday at Socarrat Paella Bar.

Here is what you need to know:

#1: The room is rustic with hardwood tables that are as strong as the shoes that the dancers wear upon wooden slats while lanterns suspend overhead creating the impression of walking into a palm reader’s parlor. The space is very contemporary and the ambiance is inviting if not intriguing.

#2: Waiters carrying large pans of paellas rush from kitchen to table before the performers take to the small stage and the performance/story begins. The sangria flows in stemmed glasses and jarras – pitchers to share.

#3: Socarrat in Spanish is a term that defines the process when the rice in the paella absorbs the liquid until it is cooked to perfection. This location is a great idea to celebrate, food, drink and music on a warm Tuesday night.

We met a few friends over drinks and dinner at this place. We had a reservation so we were lucky to get a nice table. The service was good and the food was flavourful, but super pricey. The portions should have been a bit more, given the price. That said, they did a good Sangria and overall it was a memorable visit. Not sure if we'll come back, as there are other relatively cheaper options available.

Attended a birthday dinner with friends. Socarrat is a small, intimate restaurant. The BYOB was great, but the paella was even better! We ordered a few small plates to start and a paella for three of us. Plenty of great tasting food.

If you're looking for an intimate spot with great food in Nolita, this is it.

Despite of its convenient location and friendly personnel, place is too dark, noisy and food was not as expected. The lobster rice was the same type of rice that I would expected to find in a tourist trap spot in Spain...in the middle of August. I’m Spaniard so I guess I know what I’m talking about.
