The team behind Bua and Wilfie & Nell has come out with its latest gastropub, The Spaniard, designed to be a classic New York tavern. A central horseshoe-shaped bar divides the space in two: a bright front bar with communal tables and an intimate back room with leather booths.
The whiskey selection is extensive, with over 100 selections, ranging from Scotch, ryes, bourbons, and Japanese whiskeys; the cocktail list includes whiskey cocktails such as the American Trilogy (rye, applejack, brown sugar, and orange bitters) as well as house cocktails like the Sunshine (gin, Lillet, and Aperol).
The menu offers dishes including the Buffalo Duck Wings with blue cheese, celery, and hot sauce; the Ribeye & Chips; and the Barley Risotto with farro, butternut squash, and pumpkin seeds.
Open Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 4 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 a.m.
190 W. Fourth St. (at Barrow Street)
