Set on Charles Street formerly known as Asylum Street that was a busy corner in the Village as it was the site of the "uber" of its day – a busy horse and carriage taxi service. A Greenwich Village haven of garlic and green sauce since 1941, Sevilla serves up a long list of recipes from all over Spain from Galicia to Andalusia. The refreshing sangria always tastes festive. Think beyond paella, be adventurous, try the bacalao (cod fish), or the mariscos (seafood). Grab a seat at the bar for people watching, a glass of Jerez and those Pimientos del Padron, followed by empanadas, gazpacho in summer, topped off by guava with cream cheese. A couple can dine large and lovely for under $50. Recommended by Michelin for 10 years in a row; ranks high in Zagat and recognized as an American Classic by the James Beard Foundation this year. Incidentally, the wait staff is downright courtly, no rush and no actors waiting to be discovered.
- Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants: "Instead of leaping for the giant pan of paella Valenciana, order two dishes for variety. Ask if Pimientos del Padron are in season. Food is made to order so it may take 30 minutes."
- Best for Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants Because: A winner in the nationwide James Beard Foundation American Classics in 2015, Sevilla is proof that a good thing has staying power. Don't miss it.
