Owned by Jesus “LoLo” this unassuming Spanish communal restaurant is a jewel in Chelsea.  The space is dominated by a tall communal table and framed by  Diego Velazquez images and dim light. Chef Felipe Camarillo has created a true paella experience to delight the palate.

After so many years of there not being a true Spanish restaurant in New York City, I have finally been able to experience that which had been only gastronomic description!  The gazpacho is just exploding with fresh flavors and I fell for the Pisto Manchego – a plate that consists of sauteed vegetables topped with melted Manchego cheese.

They even have a top vegetarian Paella called the de la Huerta which has asparagus, sugar snow peas, artichokes, green
beans, mushroom, green zucchini, tomatoes.  I wish we were near there right now!
