  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Charming
  • Good for special occasions
Socarrat Paella Bar - Chelsea is now accepting reservations for outdoor dining, weather permitting. In the case where we need to close due to inclement weather, we will contact you the day of your reservation.

Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette.

Socarrat Paella Bar Chelsea's ambiance denotes feelings of warmth, comfort and hospitality. A neighborhood staple with a small, intimate space comprised primarily of one large communal table with bar and smaller communal tables available.

    Always good quality food. Caught the happy hour drink specials which was nice. Had the house red from Spain and their red sangria as well. Lamb chops to start and of course paella.

    Haven't been to this location in years. I remember it being better. It's not bad just kind of middle of the road. Nothing wow'd. Chorizo - fine. Croquetas - fine. Polpo - fine. The sangria was good though.

    The best paella outside of Valencia Spain. Also, I highly recommend the fried artichokes as well as the Brussels sprouts and the croquettes are outstanding.

    Really attentive service and great turnaround times on orders. My dining partner was late arriving but I never felt rushed and was asked if I wanted any drinks or food while I waited. Food was delicious, seafood was fresh, and portion sizes weren’t overwhelming or underwhelming. What a great spot especially as the weather gets better and you want a place with outdoor seating and open windows / doors.
