Welcome to Socarrat

Few tapas restaurants or tapas bars offer an authentic taste of Spain in the heart of NYC like Socarrat Paella Bar. With three locations, you can find our Spanish restaurants in Manhattan easily, whether you’re in Chelsea, Midtown or Nolita. If you’re searching for the best paella in NYC, the best Spanish tapas in NYC or the best Spanish food restaurant in general, Socarrat has you covered.

Our dishes are rooted in traditional Spanish cooking and recipes, bringing you an authentic Spanish restaurant menu that will transport you to the Iberian Peninsula. Although our restaurants are in NYC, the paella from our kitchen, with its signature mouthwatering caramelized, crispy rice, will make you believe you’re relaxing along the beaches of Valencia. 

Like food in Spain, drinks are an important part of the culture. Our bar has a wide variety of beverages, whether you’re thirsty for a glass of fruity sangria, a red or white wine from the vineyards of Spain or a refreshing Spanish lager. 

If you’re searching for incredible Spanish tapas, Socarrat has you covered. Stop by one of our three Socarrat locations for brunch, lunch or dinner, and treat yourself to some of the best Spanish food NYC has to offer.
