Message from Casa Mono

Casa Mono and its sister restaurant, Bar Jamón are located next to each other on Irving Place and 17th Street, just east of Union Square. Awarded three stars from The New York Times in 2015 and a Michelin Star in 2009 (and every year since), Casa Mono is a tapas bar-restaurant inspired by the cooking of Spain’s Costa Brava. Executive Chef Andy Nusser, who grew up in the fishing village of Cadaqués along Spain’s Costa Brava, has reimagined classic dishes with an affinity for adventurous proteins like sweetbreads, cockscombs, and pig’s feet. Dishes are various as Razor Clams a la Plancha and Bone Marrow with Tomato Jam and Pickled Sandía have garnered a cult following. The intimate space comfortably holds 13 tables and 15 bar seats. The space is equipped with a mosaic tile floor; the interior walls are lined with bottles of sherries and wines; and the exterior walls are floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto Irving Place. Sit at the bar directly in front of the grill and experience plates cooked “à la plancha,” in all its smoky glory. Casa Mono and Bar Jamón share a wine list of nearly 600 wines, representing a thoughtful and thorough selection of Spain’s rapidly expanding world of wine. The excellence of the wine list has time and again been recognized by Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and the Spanish wine magazine Sibaritas.
