It looks like any other dive in the shadow of Port Authority, but funky Café Andalucia is a startlingly warm and authentic tapas discovery. Slices of savory chorizo sausages arrive in a garlicky onion, pepper, and wine sauce, as do dishes like camerones en ajo. Wash it all down with sweet, Rioja-based sangria, or opt for a late-night skirt steak with fries, as many do after hitting the local pubs. There are only a couple of tables, so most diners—Hell's Kitchen old-timers, soused patrons from Bellevue Bar across the street, the odd New York Post columnist—take their meals at the bar. But don't worry about squeezing in—being surrounded by a clientele so oddball and eclectic is half the fun.Recommended Dishes
