A little bite of Barcelona can be found just across from Tompkins Square Park at this bar de conservas. An array of small bites makes up Donostia's menu. Find Spanish cheeses and charcutería of Iberico pork, but the true star here are the conservas. To refer to these as canned seafood would be technically correct but improper-digging into a few is obligatory. Among the temptations, expect a delicate miniature tartalata filled with smooth sea urchin and toothsome octopus. Also try meaty chunks of oil-cured bonito with spicy salsa roja, potato chips, and mini loaf-shaped crackers called picos.
Members receive a complimentary round of wine, cider or beer for their full party.
