Tapas anyone? A new Spanish style restaurant has opened in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
Since 1868, La Nacional Cultural Center has been providing support to Spanish and Latin American immigrants to the US. Located in the Meatpacking District-which was once a hub of Spanish immigration to New York- the center offers tango and flamenco lessons, Spanish courses, guitar classes, and more cultural events in addition to the new restaurant.
While the restaurant served as the official cantina of the Spanish Benevolent Society, it is now open to the public offering quality food at reasonable prices. According to their website, their goal is to be a “catalyst for significant cultural and community immersion that reflects the Society’s mission in the contemporary era.” The restaurant will be run as a non profit and is sponsoring the visas of some of the best chefs in Spain.
So swing by for some tapas or to watch Spain in the World Cup!
