East Houston Street has gone from a street to avoid after dark, to a street jammed with yuppies on a Saturday night. Close to Whole Foods, Oliva is the equivalent of a Spanish Taverna in NYC.

Just like in Spain there is a good assortment of tapas. However Oliva’s tapas are more generous, closer to media racciones

The chef knows his stuff and several dishes are very nice. Try the Setas a la plancha, a simple dish of sautéed mushrooms, tomato and potatoes, but done professionally. The paellas were also very good, I had the Paella Valenciana rich with Spanish sausage, chicken and rabbit.

The main problem, I had with Oliva is that the tables have no space between them, so there is intimacy.

Dinner for two with Sangria is about $ 80.
