It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Tapas.
“El Quinto Pino (401 West 24th Street, 212-206-6900) for the warm uni and Korean mustard oil on ficelle bread.” –Lauren Bloomberg
“Tertulia (359 Sixth Avenue, 646-559-9909), only because it’s the newest and has broken new ground, including serving raw barnacles and Asturian cider.” –Robert Sietsema
“Tia Pol (205 Tenth Avenue, 212-675-8805). The super-crunchy fried chickpeas are one of the best bar snacks around. Munch on them, plus the chorizo with sherry, and, of course, a pitcher of sangria.” –Lauren Shockey
“I really can’t pick a favorite because I’ve had so few tapas here, and I’m more of a pintxo girl.” –Victoria Bekiempis
