Gaudir is a low-key Spanish spot that checks all the romantic dinner boxes. Located in a narrow space just off Second Ave, it’s home to a back fireplace and intricate tile work, and most importantly, some great food and drinks. The whole menu can be shared - not just the tapas like the patatas bravas and garlicky shrimp, but also the show-stopping paella (with seafood or pork ribs and chicken), which requires a minimum of two people to order.
