So here's what we think...

Barraca, located in the West Village, is popular for its authentic Spanish paellas and tapas. For years I’ve walked by the restaurant, and every summer when I see crowds of people eating delicious looking paella while sipping sangria on Greenwich Avenue, I question why I have never been to this restaurant!  Tapas style restaurants are a joy for us in the NOBREAD crowd. Yes croquettes and flatbreads are gluten-full, but tapas menus always have plenty of gluten-free options which is great especially when you are with a big group! …

At Barraca, the paella is the most popular dish, and five of the 6 paella varieties are gluten free! Being the seafood lover that I am, I ordered the mariscos paella with shrimp, calamari, cuttlefish, monkfish, string beans, clams and mussels. It was DELICIOUS! I don’t know why I don’t go out for paella more often. The dish was incredibly flavorful and so filling. The paellas are meant for two people, but if you order a bunch of tapas as appetizers, the paella is more than enough for 4. Now to the tapas… meats and cheeses are seen on most tables to start, and they are, of course, gluten free. Just ask for no side order of bread! The patatas bravas are gluten free and NOT subject to cross contamination in the fryer which is great news for the NOBREAD crowd! Other NOBREAD approved tapas you have to try: the gambas al ajillo (sizzling shrimp), tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette), setas salteadas (wild mushrooms with farm egg and truffle oil), roasted brussels sprouts, pulpo a la plancha (grilled octopus), and kale salad.
Barraca is VERY popular for brunch, and they offer a bottomless Sangria brunch that sounds incredible. The tapas and select paellas are offered at brunch, too, as well as traditional Spanish brunch items like huevos benedictos and steak and eggs with salsa verde. Both are gluten free and calling my name for my next visit. It is restaurant week right now, and unlike other restaurants that provide a very limited menu, Barraca’s restaurant week menu is extensive and nobread friendly! Hurry over to this cozy West Village hotspot!
