Paella @ Sevilla (West Village)

SEVILLA

Formally an Irish pub in the 20’s/30’s, has basically been a West Village institution since 1941. Which basically means that after 8 years of living in New York, I’m late to the paella party. (More on that below)

I will spare you all the fabulous details about how incredible the service was and how the manager was extremely welcoming and friendly, (all true) and I’ll just cut straight to the nitty gritty……This visit to Sevilla was all about the paella, which is probably some of the best I’ve had in NYC to date.

With its ample portions of flavorful, well-seasoned and perfectly cooked rice,  along with any mix of tender mussels, clams, shrimp, hearty chicken, and vegetables, if you try nothing else at Sevilla, you must try the Paella à la Valenciana.

As if my visit couldn’t get any better, I ordered a pitcher of red sangria, which was also amazing (Not too sweet, tart, strong).  I left Savilla with a nice buzz, a full stomach, a bag of leftover Paella (finished it three hours later) and the thought that I would be back ASAP!

Notable Menu Options: 

The Menu is seafood based. Try the Broiled Swordfish (Espada) or the Red Snapper, roasted with shrimp, green peppers, and onions,  or some Mussels (Mejillones) Ajillo with Garlic Sauce

Crowd: 

Groups,  younger and trendier crowd on weekends

Cost:

approximately $150 for two people

Tips:
Sevilla has no-reservations policy, so get there early or be prepared to wait
