Mercat a La Planxa features an extraordinary selection of tapas dishes from cut-to-order charcuterie and cheeses to fresh seafood, steaks and chops, all inspired by Spain's Catalan region. The impressive menu includes an emphasis on meats and seafood served 'a la planxa' or grilled-to-order. At the bar enjoy a tempting array of seasonally inspired sangrias, Spanish-styled cocktails, an extensive collection of Spanish cavas and our carefully selected wine list featuring 40 Spanish wines available by the bottle or by the glass.<br /><br />Private dining is available in our upstairs space, La Veranda, overlooking the entire main dining room.

In South African slang, "Tolani" means "too good," and that is exactly what this UWS gem is – an unpretentious spot of which you simply can't get enough. Drawing from the very best flavors, techniques and ingredients from each corner of the world, Tolani Wine Restaurant's menu brings a culinary adventure to your backyard, marrying authenticity with ingenuity.

Our restaurant stands in a beautiful, growing neighborhood: West Harlem. It’s exciting and yet it has a relaxed pace. We know that you will love our home-made pastas, breads, sauces, and our pizzas made right in our very own Brick oven; but more importantly, we hope to fill your spirits with a genuine, savory, and hearty experience. Also, join us upstairs at our Covo Lounge for a mix of signature cocktails, delightful music and an easygoing atmosphere.

"The octopus special was disappointing - a little soft/rubbery. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente!"

Chef Bill Telepan acclaimed former chef of the 3-star Judson Grill will serve the very best and freshest of seasonal foods impeccably prepared and paired with an interesting, hand-picked and reasonably priced selection of wines. Ruth Reichl described his cooking as “…extremely eloquent; each of [his] unassuming dishes roars with flavor, and the minute you finish one bite you instantly want another. His direct style draws diners into a vibrant interplay of textures, tastes and colors.” Located in the heart of the Upper West Side, Telepan welcomes fine dining enthusiasts from around the city, as well as the pre- and post-theater Lincoln Center crowd.
