The barrels and signs in gothic font at Sala One Nine suggest a Medieval Spain exhibit in a children’s museum, and we’re fine with that. This place is shockingly large, romantically-lit, and realistically cavernous. It’s also a little more formal than some of your other tapas options - they have fancy meat platters, a long wine list, and servers who can help you figure out your order. We recommend this place for drinks and tapas after work in Flatiron, a date, or a group meal where people feel comfortable spending a bit.

Eataly: La Birreria
We didn't see it coming, but we actually really dig the beer garden on the roof of Eataly. You’ll be hard pressed to find one with a larger variety of good things to eat, and the crowd is much more pleasant up here than in the tourist packed insanity that exists underneath it.

El Quinto Pino
This restaurant/wine bar in Chelsea from the folks who brought you Tia Pol and Txikito delivers solid authentic Spanish eats, wine, and sangria.
Tia Pol is a Chelsea tapas spot that’s a great move for early-in-the-game dates. Have some sangria and some small plates.
