The lowdown

Socarrat Paella Bar, named for that delectable crust that forms on the bottom of a paella pan, is the second restaurant venture of Jesus Manso, who also owns La Nacional at the Spanish Benevolent Society. Like that expat hangout, Socarrat specializes in traditional tapas like gambas al ajillo and patatas bravas, and entrées focus largely on paellas and fideuàs. Communal-table and bar seating are meant to evoke Sunday dinner at a friend’s house.
