Lunch yesterday was at NYC’s Tía Pol where we devoured plate after plate of the most delicious tapas: patatas bravas, gildas, pimentos estilo gernika, and garbonzos fritos. Owner Mani Dawes and manager Stephanie Mannatt brought us a glass porrón filled with cold effervescant txakoli. Tipping back our heads and aiming the vessel’s long spout in the general direction of our mouths, we drank (and ending up wearing!) streams of the delicious white wine—they sure showed us a good time up there in New York City.
We’re back in the studio today eating pan-seared magret duck breast and a lettuce, pea shoot, and chive salad with a duck egg mimosa vinaigrette for lunch. Let the good times roll.
