Rooted in the ideals of exploration, Gypsy Kitchen takes on the tenet of its namesake, geographically and culinarily: dishes are inspired by Spanish cuisine and the flavors of regions across the country’s coast: the Galician and Basque areas up north, south to Andalusia and Catalonia on the east. The menu — boquerones, patatas bravas, serrano-wrapped fish with a fennel-olive salad, “paella” with shrimp, chorizo, peas and fried egg — is the result of years of travel through the Iberian domain.
The ambience is transportative, too. Mosaic-tiled walls, Moroccan-style lanterns and a large toro statue behind the bar are reminiscent of any traditional Catalan décor. Speaking of which, the cocktails are of such regional descent as well, with offerings like The Evil Eye (saffron gin, espellete, paprika, strega, lemon and cocchi) and The Merchant’s Ward (rum, zucca amaro, orange bitters and sweet vermouth). -Jaime Lin Weinstein
