Oonth-I keep finding you. The reason I wound up on this board is that I'm searching for a restaurant in Manhattan that serves up authentic Basque style angulas. I'm thinking of Solera. Any other alternatives? I know they're expensive (but I just spent $200 at the re-opening of Ushi Wakamaru-see my recent review-so what the hell). Despana and Bar Carrera have the audacity to offer angulitas-sarimi made to look like eels! Despana sells the real deal in $40 tins but I'm no cook and would imagine they're better fresh anyway.
