My friend Gerry first introduced me to this Chelsea neighborhood establishment more than 20 years ago. Whenever I come to NYC, he tries to goad me into trying someplace new and trendy. So many new places to try in New York! I choose the kitschy deliciousness of El Quijote. Always crowded and lively, you come back for the delicious freshly cooked lobster in it's delectable sauce you want to smother yourself in, it is that good. The lobster is served in shell, but cut up into perfect bites so the sauce permeates the tender lobster. I also enjoyed their gazpacho, but it could have benefited from the addition of the traditional accompaniments. Troubadours dressed in Spanish costumes sing for their supper and badily ask for tips for their rendition of your favorite Spanish songs...so what if they are mostly Mexican songs? It is all fun and good food at El Quijote.
