Manhattan: Buceo95

201 W. 95th Street

Reviewed by: Amy from MA (moderator), review #3864

When: 2012

Tiny, obnoxiously loud, but an enticing collection of tapas and wines.

Directions: Between Amsterdam and Columbus on the UWS

We had an early dinner here on a Saturday night, arriving at 5:30. It was almost too loud to have a conversation an hour later in the tiny space. People were waiting outside in the cold, it seems to be popular. The menu has a nice selection of tapas, with some traditional (shrimp in garlic, tortilla Espanola) and others more contemporary (mini lamb burgers with manchego cheese; green beans with crispy bacon, crème fraiche with white truffle oil) Everything we sampled was well prepared and very tasty. Nice wines - the "Quartino" size gives two large or three medium pours. The tables are high, so if you're short you may need to climb awkwardly up onto a high stool to sit. I'd return at an off-time for the food and wine!
