We had a really great dinner in this Monday night pop up in the space that is home to Mountain Bird Tuesdays-Sundays. The room and ambience are comfortable, wine and cocktails good, and food just delicious. I thought the tapas compared to those in Portugal and Spain and the breadth of offerings was great. We had some delicious Iberian ham to start, followed by two types of croquettes filled with chorizo and ham, grilled squid with fava beans, peas and a black ink vinaigrette, a delicious mixed mushroom tapas, and a melt in the mouth oxtail. Desserts were great - especially the flourless chocolate case with some kind of almond vanilla sauce. Will return to try the tomato pan, grilled octopus and one of the several delicious sounding rice dishes.

The food was good. I was expecting much better but I lived. I'd go again.

A lovely new addition to the Tastings Social guest chef roster at the Mountain Bird spot in East Harlem, GAUDlr with Chef Cedric Durand. A Spanish tapas style pop-up, this particular night featured a set tasting menu to celebrate Sant Gordi, a Catalan lover's celebration associated bizarrely with St. George. Complementary roses and a book of choice were exchanged, then a glass of Prosecco, followed by a delicate octopus appetizer, eggplant/ tomato terrine, cuts of an aged ham, squid with fava and peas, then two entrée choices (duck or fresh lobster risotto) and a perfect strawberry meringue and chocolate cake desert. Bravo! Keep these innovations coming.

It's a shame everyday of the week can't be a Monday this summer. Otherwise I'd try to eat here almost everynight. Unfortunately the restaurant is only open on Mondays for the summer, so we'll all just have to settle for once a week. As another reviewer said the food here is among the best, if not the best tapas in NYC, and is probably up among the top meals I've had at a New York restaurant.

My three favorites were the oxtail, the roasted eggplant, and the goat cheese, apple, and cayenne-lime merengue desert. The flavors and textures combined together deliciously in each plate we had. Definitely will be going back soon to try out the paella

Such a great meal. I would recommend making the trip. Sergio and the staff took such great care of us. The food was fantastic! Octopus. Tortilla espanola. Jamon. Croquetas. Great wine selection and delicious sangria. Wonderful setting. We could have talked and eaten for days...

We just had a delicious meal—get as many tapas as possible! The paella was great, but for me, the octopus stole the show. Wine pairing was excellent, too.

Delicious. We shared the seafood paella. Ate to the last rice grain. Or nearly. Bomba rice. Never heard of it but seems to be fat grains that absorb the deeply flavored cooking broth. Perfect crusty bottom. Bits of seafood in every bite. Plan to go back every Monday to eat our way through the other classic paellas. The Bacalao was different, tasted like ceviche. Small but thoughtful wine list and creative gin and tonic. Romantic setting. Attentive staff.

GAUDIr was a great new pop-up. Great tapas and great sangria. The oxtail was amazing, as was the seafood paella. Highly recommended.
