Socarrat Paella Bar - Midtown East is now accepting reservations for both indoor and outdoor dining, weather permitting. In the case where we need to close due to inclement weather, we will contact you the day of your reservation. To book a table online for indoor dining, please select "standard seating".

Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette.

Our Midtown location, the most recent addition to the Socarrat family, displays a lively atmosphere that is perfect for small and big groups alike. Book your next party in our private dining room!

    Our server treated us well, and we enjoyed the happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. Tapas were also priced right during that time. The paella had a nice crust and was well done. We would definitely return.
