Best Gambas Al Ajillo New York 2001 - Marichu
Shrimp with garlic are a Spanish restaurant standby. At MARICHU, the UN-adjacent spot, the Basque food of the northwestern section is highlighted. Start with a chilled glass of sherry and a handful of olives for atmosphere, then move on to the gambas, sizzling hot in an earthenware casserole that's got more than a hint of garlic for flavor. Smokers can even puff in the back room.
