Alex Raij and Eder Montero have added an adjacent dining room to their beloved, tiny Chelsea tapas bar (El Quinto Pino), so now you never have to worry about waiting for a seat. The bright, airy room is decorated with teal seats; big, retro lighting fixtures; and a wall lined in funky fabric. It's ideal for hosting groups—a good move, considering all the small plates are sharable. Raij's famous uni panini is still a must-order (you won't want to share that one), but new to the menu are delightful dishes like sea anemone in soft-scrambled eggs, which tastes like fried oysters and eggs, and anchovies with sweet vanilla butter (it could almost qualify as a dessert, but it works). All these items are prefect for a predinner snack (and drink), but if you want to make a full meal of it, order heartier dishes like hot garlicky shrimp and braised tongue with capers. There's an extensive selection of Spanish wines and sherrys by the glass, but El Comedor (and El Quinto Pino) are now offering original cocktails, too.
