New UWS Favorite — spanish food goes modern …

From the minute you enter the place, Graffit’s (recently renamed Gastroart©) just “feels” right. It captures Chef Jess Nez’s spanish spirit and artistic talent, but for dinner you want more than that — like extremely good, imaginative, modern, and original food, which is, indeed, why I keep going back to this place. The Chef says it is “a crumble of Mediterranean and multicultural ingredients and molecular methods.” Well, OK, I’ll go along with that …

You have lots of seating choices: There’s tapas +dinner menu at the bar and at community and smaller tables adjacent to the bar … or get only the dinner menu in the Dining Room or beautiful Garden Room. All terrific, but, lately, I’ve been opting for the tapas+dinner …

Go with your mood. And, see if you can resist using your iPhone to shoot the food presentation which isn’t like any other in the City. I love the beets and goat cheese, the cubed potatoes, the Indian Summer dessert. Order and be surprised.

Call for a reservation: (646) 692-8762 or you can use opentable.com, too.

Graffit or Gastroart© (the canopy still has the Graffit name at this writing) at 141 West 69th Street between Broadway and Columbus
