An "intimate East Village spot" and "the latest in a collection from the Spanish chef and restaurateur Ruben Rodriguez’s Nai Restaurant Group" according to The New York Times, Emilia By Nai is a fusion or Galician flavors with "a definite Japanese influence" (NY Times).

"Nai," meaning mother in Gallego, is at the heart of the innovative and humbling cuisine by Galician native, Chef Ruben Rodriguez, whose 3 restaurants in the city (Emilia by Nai, Amigo by Nai, Nai New York) showcase his marvelous talent, which brings together the perfect combination of contemporary cuisine & tradition.

Equally praised by Time Out, Emilia By Nai will whisk you away to Spain, where family gathers in the kitchen to cook, talk, and show love by way of food. Expect a focus on seafood and vegetables that nod to Rodriguez's native Galicia, where he cooked in his mother’s restaurant, and alongside his grandmother, Emilia - the name speaks for itself!

An open kitchen lets you peep inside as the team of talented culinary creatives work their magic. Hideaway in Mediterranean-style arched alcoves, or sit at the counter, soaking in the energetic vibe that permeates this simply stunning yet understated East Village treasure.

As you pour lusty Sangria into your glass, swoon as brilliantly presented plates arrived. Think color, freshness, and flavor by way of velvety Duck Paté, as well as the Shiitake Katsu with brioche, garlic aioli, and curried onion. The grilled Octopus is a favorite, sided by potatoes & smoked paprika mayo.

A trip to Spain might not be on the books, but that doesn't mean you can't have a taste of it right here in NYC...
