Fantastic food and service. 5 plates and a dessert was the perfect portion for 2, and meal was well paced. Try: eggplants, fideua, duck breast. Will be back to try the suckling pig.
Just perfect environment and yummy food.
I went to La Vara because of all the good reviews and was sorely disappointed, so I thought I'd leave one for those with high standards out there. On the surface, La Vara looks cute. Waiters seem nice. The menu doesn't look half bad. But then, you discover that it's far from an authentic Spanish restaurant-- the wines they offer are reallyyy sub-par for what they charge, and the waitresses don't know much about them at all. The food is not good (I had the octopus, which was chewy, the lobster risotto, which I swear was microwaved before we received it, and the duck which was flavored well but entirely too fatty). While we were in the middle of eating (!), the waitress began pushing us to order more food. Maybe we Americans are desensitized to this, but I still think that's tacky. Waiters are not meant to be salesmen who intrude upon your dinner. I gave it two stars for the cute patio but will not go there again. Too many good restaurants in New York.
