Bar Reyna @ Yorkville

Spent St. Patrick’s Day (coincidentally, really) with Adrienne at Bar Reyna in the heart of Yorkville.  What intrigued me about this restaurant was their beautiful indoor patio and their chargrilled octopus dish.

Started off with Mushroom on Toast.

Sherry glazed mushrooms, garlic, shallots and fried quail egg

Next shared Mini Empanadas, soft and a teensy bit spicy.

Chorizo and chipotle aioli.  Drinks the back are The Rickey and Moscow Mule 😛

One of our favourites of the night Lamb Shank Baklava!!

Kataifi, lamb shank, saffron and burnt honey aioli

And lastly the famous Chargrilled Octopus with romesco sauce and fried shishito peppers & capers. The texture of the octopus was very meaty and not as rubbery or bouncy like the ones at other restaurants (ex. Bar Isabel), so we both preferred it more.

Spanish fries in the background – skinny and super crispy (Spanish spiced, shaved manchego, chorizo, chipotle aioli)

Would love to come back to try their other fries, there’s Greek, Arabic, French and Italian styles!
