Jamon Iberico Pata Negra is an absolutely amazing restaurant from start to finish conveniently located in downtown. From Paellas, tapas, steaks, and fillets, if you're looking for really authentic Spanish cuisine, this is your spot. They also have a great lunch special which includes a 3 course meal for less than $14!
To top off an already exquisite culinary experience, the owner, whom is also the executive chef, comes out to greet all of his patrons and chat with each table. Jamon Iberico is true european style dining; tables close together, lots of conversation and of course wine!

Tiny, but cozy. Dark, but intimate. NIU Kitchen goes above and beyond when it comes to Catalan cuisine with a twist. The food is innovating, creative, but still following Spanish tradition. NIU is perfect for a romantic date night and because of limited seating, be sure to make reservations beforehand. We recommend the 'OUS' plate that contains poached eggs, truffled potato foam, and Iberico ham is off the charts. An experience that should not be missed.

What's 100 Montaditos?? Tiny sandwiches, huge taste, and extremely cheap prices. The only problem you will face when walking into this joint is 'what do i order?!' There are an endless variety of Spanish sandwiches ranging from $2 to $4. And their promotion on Wednesdays...$1 montaditos! The beauty of this place is sampling a little bit of everything and believe me you would never think that you could get so full on such tiny sandwiches.

Barceloneta also has amazing happy hours for different days of the week.

Authentic brick, live music, red tiles, colorful fabrics and pottery from Spain are what create a warm hospitable atmosphere to enjoy some of Spain's finest cuisine at Casa Juancho. All seafood and fish are imported straight from Spain so you can imagine you will be eating the best of the best. They also have an extensive wine cellar with over 450 aged and vintage wines with one of the rarest collections of Spanish wines in the United States. Though not exactly cheap, Casa Juancho will take you on a Spanish journey that is definitely worth what you pay for.
