I've recently had a hankering for paella, but don't feel like making it myself. Problem is that I think that I make a really good paella, and long ago decided most restaurants can't.

For me, the rice is the key. Not to say that some lobster, chicken, and sausage aren't appreciated, but if the rice isn't good enough to shine on its own, the paella is flawed. I remember a long time ago eating leftover paella that had just been come from a restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark, NJ. Even without re-heating it was fantastic.

So where can I get really good paella? I've searched the postings, but it sounds as if the last year has taken its toll of local restaurants, so I'm interested in recent experiences.
