Three Star Review for Jamonera

Trey Popp reviews Jamonera, Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s new Spanish wine bar and finds excellent precision, pacing and fun.

Turney’s trend-spotting is offset by a depth of engagement with classic Spanish foodstuffs that rivals Jose Garces’s culinary curatorship. Do you like chorizo? Jamonera was using five varieties the last time I went, from smoky chistorra links from Basque country­ (on an egg-and-short-rib-smothered­ plate of papas fritas that played like a Spanish one-up on poutine) to foot-and-a-half-long canteplano­ sausages crafted by a Spanish expat in California, and a house-made duck chorizo enriched with fat trimmed from slices of Fermin Iberico ham.

Three Stars – Excellent
