My father, who has spent a great deal of time in Spain, is coming to NYC. He is craving Spanish food since he can't get it where he lives now. I have always found this to be a tough request to fulfill in NYC. Atmosphere is aplenty but the food has always been lacking. It will be difficult to convince him that decent Spanish food it very good (he is looking to be wow'ed). We are not concerned about paella unless its quality helps define the quality of the rest of the restaurant's food. Also, we are trying to avoid driving to Newark.
I am trying to pare down these six to one. Anyone have any opinions on the follow?
La Mesa D'Espana
El Charro Espanol
El Pote Espanol
Meson Flamenco (on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn)
(We went to Solera a few years back and were not impressed. )
