Huertas, a new Northern Spanish restaurant, opens tonight in the East Village. Chef Jonah Miller, an alum of Maialino, Savoy, and Gramercy Tavern, serves a range of Basque pinxtos at the restaurant's bar, and a four-course prix fixe menu in the dining room proper. The pinxtos, which servers pass around the bar on trays, "dim-sum style," include classics like tortilla Espanola, boquerones, and cured meats. The "menu del dia," meanwhile, is $52 per person, and includes a few pinxtos, followed by an egg dish, a choice of entrees like cod with smoked garlic and greens or pork shoulder with spring onion migas and green romesco, and a choice of dessert.
Drinks at the bar include Spanish beers, wines, and ciders, plus vermouth on tap and "refrescos" made from mixing beer or wine with soda or juice. The restaurant is open for dinner every day except Monday, and has plans to add lunch soon. Check out the menus, below.
