First Look at Socarrat Nolita, Now Serving Lobster Paella and Montaditos


Several months ago, we revealed that Chelsea’s tiny Socarrat Paella Bar had taken the old Ghenet space in Nolita and planned to open a larger outpost there. Yesterday it did just that. Owner Lolo Manso tells us he’s added a couple of paellas, including a lobster, calamari, and cod variety, as well as a lamb and eggplant one, and he’s also added a selection of $3 montaditos. Though this location shares a chef with the original, there are other changes to the tapas menu, so take a look below and tour the 60-seat dining room via our slideshow. Socarrat Nolita will be open daily from 6 till 11:30 p.m., and here’s the best part: This location takes reservations.
