El Quijote

Front Entrance
El Quijote appears untouched by time. While seafood remains the most popular choice on the massive menu, they know their steak here, too. Try the tapa of filet mignon tips, sizzling in a frying pan, or the special appetizer combo for two. Lobster in green sauce, like everything else, is gigante. (Be sure to spoon the extra-garlicky salsa over everything in sight.) Paella, available four different ways, is also a good choice for the table. If, by some miracle, you’re able to squeeze anything else into your stomach at meal’s end, the flan is fantástico.

Full Description: Located next to the Chelsea Hotel, El Quijote offers exquisite Cuisine from the best of Spain since 1930. Located in the Chelsea district of New York, it offers the most authentic Spanish cuisine you'll find in New York city, at very reasonable prices.

Traditional menu favorites include mejillones, paella, chulleta and gambas. Add to the mix the restaurant's authentic Spanish décor, Cervantes mural and well-dressed waitstaff, and it's easy to see why this is one of Chelsea's most carefully guarded secrets.

Entire families enjoy themselves here, and the portions are overwhelming. Make sure you try the sangria.
