Profile

This restaurant from the team behind Rayela and Macondo prides itself on its takes on two Spanish essentials: sangria and paella. The fruit-specked beverages—available in six distinct varieties by the glass or pitcher—perfectly blend sweetness with spirits, but the authentic rice platters don't fully live up to the hype. The two-serving minimum per paella order may be off-putting, too, until an enormous split skillet arrives at the table. Six starkly different paella options range from squid-ink-infused rice to butifarra sausage-topped Mediterranean noodles, though the Paella de Mariscos, with shrimp, scallops, and squid, proves most popular. The cuisine here is more traditional than Chef Jesús Núñez's former boundary-pushing endeavor Gastoarte, which may explain why Barraca's complicated dishes happen to outshine the menu's Spanish mainstays. The Mollete de Cordero, a pulled lamb sandwich with manchego and Guernica peppers, falls flat, but the oxtail stew and sauce left behind from the outstanding Pimientos De Piquillo will turn any leftover bread into a vehicle for savored bites. Dishes tend to err on the salty side, but with a choice of nontraditional drinks and a lively crowd thanks to its 3 a.m. closing time, you may never even notice.

Recommended Dishes

Pimientos de piquillo, $10; Paella de mariscos, $24 per person
