Time Out: Best Spanish Restaurants in America


“Offal-loving partner Mario Batali and protégée Andy Nusser (Babbo, Po) broke new ground at Gramercy Park’s Casa Mono by serving dishes that less-adventurous tapas restaurants seem to shy away from: think pig ears with chilaquiles and excellent fried sweetbreads in an almond-flour batter. For non-organ lovers, there’s a juicy skirt steak atop romesco sauce and the iconic fried duck egg. A section of the menu is called “Whole organic animals”—the restaurant buys its various beasts whole, then spreads their bits across the always innovative menu. The open kitchen lends a fun and fiery atmosphere to the dining room, which is adorned with mosaic tile floors and lined with wine bottles. And speaking of those bottles, Casa Mono continues to house one of the most impressive collections of Spanish wines you’ll find in the Northeast. Sherry lovers, be warned: You may never want to leave.”
