Only in New York, Kids: Spanish Wine Bars Without Wine


Maybe Bourdain was right when he said New York would never match Spain. After all, Spanish taperas arent stuck serving virgin sangria! After opening in July, Bar Carreras Houston Street location still hasnt been granted a liquor license. Not that we have a problem bringing our own (theres a liquor store on La Guardia between Bleecker and West 3rd) but whats the holdup? Frederick Twomeys establishments are pretty chill except for that one time when a guy tried to light everyone on fire at Bar Veloce. We entreat you, State Liquor Authority: Do like you finally, finally did with Socarrat, and let the Cava flow!
