Profile

Lura’s neon sign peeks out through the Manhattan Valley grid of bodegas and convenience stores. The entrance is unassuming—if not cramped—but a walk downstairs reveals an expansive yet intimate setting, with exposed rock walls and distressed wood tables cast in a dim red glow. The menu, which consists of a Mediterranean-cum-American-nouveau selection of changing tapas items, is broken down into large and small plates. Some dishes are uninspiring, such as the bland, sausage-stuffed mushrooms, but there are a few items that match Lura’s outstanding atmosphere, like the octopus of the Ensalada De Pulpo, marinated to perfection over pepper salad; and the Lura Burger, a deliciously juicy patty served with carmelized onions, tzaziki, and feta cheese. Tapas plates, large or small, are solid when paired with wine, and you can choose from a number of affordable bottles on the list here. At meal’s end, baklava offers a sweet finish.
