Oloroso looks like a tapas place, and the way the menu is set up - with small plates and charcuterie dominating the menu - it seems like it should be a tapas place, but it definitely doesn’t feel like a tapas place. It feels more upscale, with formal service and well-dressed people on special occasion dates or client dinners. So it’s probably not the best place to show up unannounced with a few friends and get a little loud, but the small plates (especially the charred eggplant and brochetas de pollo) are worth a visit next time you’re looking for a spot to take your boss in Midtown Village.
