Great Tapas place. Different food
Great new spot. Went to check it out after reading about their launch and the eccentric menu and was not disappointed. Great food and server was extremely helpful in accommodating our large group. Going back for the duck, oysters and Flan.

There is nothing like a duck
There is nothing like a duck heart souffle or a python sausage to get a conversation going. The fifth quarter fare at Plan B is as intriguing as it is tasty. Great atmosphere, attentive service, and an amazing wine selection made my night at Plan B very special.

Everything was yummy and perfectly
Everything was yummy and perfectly paced. My wine glass was kept full, and my friend and I got to catch up nicely over the delicious small plates. Service was perfect for what we looking for.

Delicious, fun and full of variety!
The food here is incredible! The menu is organized from lighter to heavier fare so it's easy to choose through the courses. I love to eat a lot of different things so tapas are a great choice. The dishes here are shareable and fun for dining with friends or on a date. I've been here three times and I will keep coming back.
The chicharron, eggplant, test icles, python sausage, anchovies, eel and paella shooters are my favorites.
You MUST try plan b--you'll be hooked!
The service here is awesome! They are very attentive, knowledgeable and paced our meal perfectly. Our server was charming, provided beverage suggestions and made us feel well taken care of.

Tapas to share were wonderful. Erica's suggestions were taken to heart and did not fail. The drink selectionn was extensive and to everyone's taste. Looking forward to our next visit.

A new NYC favorite. Food was spectacular and with a wine selection to match. This hole in the wall spot is a true gem. Tapas dining is my favorite and they have some spectacular ones. Menu is limited but great range for all pallets. Worth checking out.

Delicious twists on tapas
Plan B is not your typical tapas. Depending on how adventurous you are in your choices, you can stick to more traditional dishes or venture to some of the more interesting choices. We ordered a few of each and were not disappointed. The halibut was truly perfect, the best halibut I have every tasted. The octopus was another favorite. The rabbit meatballs, goat cheese, chorizo, and asparagus were all delicious. I cannot wait to head back and try some more new dishes!

Plan B review
I went here on a Monday, so it was pretty quiet, but the service was great and the food was definitely delicious.

Great food tiny portions
Loved the service, ambience, and the food but all the tapas were the size of a tasting menu. I love a good tasting menu but not at the prices they charge. They could keep the prices if they offered slightly larger portions. This is the only explanation I have for it being as quiet as it was on a Saturday night at 8pm in Nolita!

Good service. Excellent Food
Good service. Excellent Food . Short ribs amazing.

Three of us shared dishes
Three of us shared dishes from both the Happy Hour and the Tapas menus and enjoyed all of them. The lamb chops were a high point - perfectly pink through-out, with a mustard-infused crust. And the chicharrons were delicious, crisp little bites that left us wanting more. (Tapas, after all.) Happy Hour oysters on the half-shell were a bargain, but Plan B doesn't serve cocktail sauce as an accompaniment, only mignonette. (It's not that hard to make but maybe we'll bring our own, next time.) Service was excellent. Admittedly, we dined unfashionably early, which may account for the quiet atmosphere while we were there, as well as the very charming service, not to mention the ease of parking directly across the street from the restaurant.

Awesome tapas, especially
Awesome tapas, especially the short ribs - best I have ever had. Python sausage was interesting too. A little on the pricey side, if you like really big servings, but the portions are bigger than at other tapas places in NYC. Very friendly service - Tess at the bar and Marisa at our table. Looking forward to my next visit already.

Perfect dining on July 4th evening - excellent service, amazing food and a beautiful space - 5 stars all the way around.

great place for HH
I went there for a HH with friends and really enjoyed the meal there. Tapas is always fun to do - but it's especially great when there's good food involved! All the seafood dishes were great - especially the squid ink paella - which had a spicy kick to it. HH is from 5-7pm which is great for people to 9-6 schedules to make after work. My friend did not like her white wine (too tangy) - but my rioja was pretty good.

Creative and tasty tapas
Fun neighborhood with personable and charming service. Best of all, a great mix of Northern Spain regional tastings.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server lady was very attentive. Food is good too. Great place for Tapas in NY. My only issue is their Scotch selection. It was very limited, didn't have my favorite and very popular Johnnie Walker Black.

I had dinner at Plan B last week and returned again as I enjoyed the food so much. Everything is delicious. If you like octopus, they do it especially well. Grilled and tender. The almond gazpacho is another gem as is the smoked salmon with creme fraiche on chickpea patties. We had a few other things that I can't recall but I do remember that each one was excellent.
My only criticism, and I noticed this both times, is the tendency to try to clear the plates away too soon. This must be a policy of the managerial staff as it was consistent. This tends to foster the impression that they want to get you out and make room for more customers; never a good attitude.
Other that that I highly recommend this place.

Plan B is definitely Plan A. Great service, great design and excellent service. Plus happy hour specials from 5-7pm.
I went with a group of girlfriends and we stayed for hours.
Fantastic location as well

Had such a great time at Plan B on the last night of our NYC vacation. Fun menu with creative and daring choices, fantastic cocktails, and enthusiastic staff. Highlight of the trip.

A happy find!
This place literally was our Plan B. We couldn't get in Cook Shop and we were staying in Nolita and someone in our group wanted to eat nearby. The food was good. Server was extremely engaged. The food didn't come out in the order we asked for it, but other than that, it was pretty spot on. There wasn't any one dish that wowed me, but they were all good. I found the bar menu really bizarre. No vodka? Really? I'd go back. We enjoyed one of the two elevated tables, which probably enhanced the experience. The decor was maybe my favorite thing about the restaurant.

Good food.. great atmosphere and excellent service

Most enjoyable dinner in a while!
We live in the village and take advantage of the great restaurants.
This was one of the best in a while. Nice cocktails, good wine, a very fresh take on tapas, helpful and pleasant service, and a nice ambiance.
We loved the pickle oyster shooters.
Almond gazpacho was emmm.
Short ribs were fantastic (very rich).
Gets a little loud and the seat for two at the window is nice.

Wierd and wonderful
Prime location with weird mixture of decorating style and taste, but tapas was wonderful. Small dishes indicated on menue in very distinct categories of veggie, meat seafood, etc. and section for unusual food.

Plan B should really be your plan A
Food, service and atmosphere were superb!
Attention to detail is on point and you really feel as though
You are the only table!
Food is beyond amazing and my goal is to keep returning and try
Every item on their menu!
Great night out!!

Fab Drinks Good Food

Small plates lots of great choices
Food, service and ambiance really great. I book a reservation solely on recommendations and was not disappointed. Cocktails were written up as really creative and good but mine was weak and not very impressive.

Cool Tapas place
Really cool room design. Incredibly friendly staff. Good drinks, great menu, and good food. Great little place- would definitely return.

Will return soon
Great food, very friendly staff, amazing ambiance. Coming back very soon

The food here is killer and the staff was very accommodating. I recommend this for a date spot and apparently the brunch is heat.

Outstanding Anniversary Experience
I picked this place on a whim and then read all the rave reviews about it. Well I can without a doubt agree with everything that was said about Plan B. We got there before our reservation and managed to have a dozen of the happy hour $1 oysters and the olive selection to start. The oysters were huge, briney and chilled to perfection, a heavy dollop of horseradish and we were off. We then had the wonderful cheese plate with four or five kinds of cheese. We moved on to the Patatas Bravas, the Octopus and the Mushrooms all of which were phenomenal. I topped that off with the Chorizo which were sweet and salty, delicious. We had Flan and a Dark Chocolate cake for dessert. All in all and incredible dinner experience that made me long for Spain!
