Socarrat Paella Bar - Nolita is now accepting reservations for indoor and outdoor dining, weather permitting. In the case where we need to close outdoor seating due to inclement weather, we will contact you the day of your reservation.

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.

Socarrat Nolita's ambiance denotes feelings of warmth, comfort, and hospitality. Building on its sister restaurant's identity as a small, intimate space comprised primarily of one large communal table, the restaurant also offers banquet, bar and table seating.

    Of the theee Socarrat restaurants, this is my favorite for ambiance. Croquetas and Brussel Sprouts were excellent starters. The "Socarrat" namesake paella was delicious - shrimp, fish, mussels and chicken, with flavorful rice. As we were near finishing the dish, a server kindly offered to scrape up the crusty socarrat at bottom of the pan. That's an entree and dessert in one dish! Had room for churros, dipped in chocolate. Nice selection of wines, some by the glass. Service was friendly, upbeat, attentive, and helpful with suggestions. Outdoor seating was comfortable and good for people watching. Inside tables had open air feeling because the wall facing the front was removed. Wonderful evening.

    we had a drink at the bar a few days ago, and enjoyed the ambiance. We noticed that there is a weekly Flamenco night on Tuedays, so we returned for dinner and the show. We arrived a half hour before the performance so we could order before the show began. Our server was prompt and attentive, and we ordered a variety of tapas and champagne sangría. The sangría was delicious and all of our tapas were perfectly prepared. The show was a lot of fun, combining flamenco guitar and dance with some numbers where patrons could join in the dance--people who knew how to dance to the music, and some of us who did not! Throughout the show, service was attentive and unobtrusive. Our server even sang a number, with a beautiful voice. We plan to return to try the paella and will bring our friends.

    I dine here each time I visit New York. It has always been such a fabulous relaxing experience. The paella is divine. I have especially enjoyed when a classical guitarist plays during brunch. I was a little disappointed by the music selection— I feel the ambience of a paella bar could be best complemented by Spanish music. Instead the music was soul tunes. It was low class, in my opinion, that the server insisted that the manager will not allow one individual at the table to order a bottomless Mamosa. All guests at the table must also purchase a bottomless Mamosa, even though I was dining with my alcohol free husband, and 15-year-old son. An exception was made for the 15 year old, but I literally had to persuade the server to not charge me $44 for 2 mimosas when my husband doesn’t drink. I am sorry that they have been so taken advantage of that they have adopted this policy. I also found it strange that the churro stand next-door, owned bye the same owner, would not my 15-year-old to bring his churros into the restaurant. He had to eat them outside on the curb while we were inside purchasing $100 plus brunch.

    The paella tasted like anything, but paella. The rice texture was wrong because the rice type was wrong, and the flavors were wrong. For what it was it was overpriced. Careless, distracted cooking lacking any sort of vibrancy or quality. But at least the paella had some sort of flavor, which wasn’t the case with the tortilla. Evidently they had forgotten to even add salt. When told about the latter, our waiter could not look at us and evidently wanted to leave, because he did before I could even tell him my issue with the dish.
