Tio Pepe: "Spanish/Mexican in Greenwich Village" Tio Pepe Tip by Dabs
Tio Pepe, New York City: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Julie (travelmad478) picked this for our small VT meeting on a Saturday night. Mark (acemj) and Tania (skye820) came in from Philadelphia and Chris (cjg1) joined us a little later in the evening.
The place was crowded but not overly loud, nicely decorated. We stayed for quite a while but the server never seemed to be rushing us.
Favorite Dish: Everything we tried was good but I especially enjoyed the paella, we started off with a bunch of tapas-chicken quesadillas, caracoles Tio Pepe (escargot), pulpo a la Gallega (octopus), chorizo and gambas al ajillo (shrimp), followed by an order of paella valencia (saffron rice dish with seafood and chicken) for two and chiles rellenos accompanied by a couple of pitchers of sangria. Even with all this food and drinks the bill came to only $35 per person.
I couldn't get the menu to load off their website, but I could from here
Although most of what we tried was Spanish, Tio Pepe also has many Mexican dishes.
