Description: Inspired by the tapas bars and “Cervezerias” that surround Barcelona’s renowned food market “ElMercado de la Boqueria”, Boqueria serves market driven authentic Spanish cuisine. Boqueria feature a long marble bar with tapas, artisanal cheeses, cured meats & hand sliced Serrano ham. The menu of tapas & shareable larger dishes includes many favorites of Spanish cuisine as well as more creative dishes in Boqueria’s rustic spirit.

Boqueria is situated at the corner of 19th & M, a few blocks south of Dupont Circle, in the downtown DC area. Two for lunch, sharing the bocata serrano (Spanish ham thinly sliced on rustic bread with tomatoes) and lubline a la plancha (s lunch-sized portion of branzino). Split a very soft crème brulee for dessert.

Food was very good; ditto for service. Not cheap eats, at $73 for two with no alcohol, but worth a visit.

If you are in DC and look for a nice and relaxed place to eat: Go there.
I only tried the vegetarian part of the tapas menu and every single dish was AMAZING.
Top it off with churros for dessert- you won't regret it. Staff was also very friendly.

I’ve been to Boqueria for lunch but mostly I’ve stopped in after work during the week. I’ve always found a great crowd and good atmosphere. The staff is excellent and always helpful. I’ve recommended Boqueria to many friends and all have had god things to say about it. Nice patio outside along 19th St, too. Good times.

Boqueria takes tapas in Washington, DC to the next level. The food is really good and the service is great. I don’t know how a place so busy can bring out the food with such speed without sacrificing on quality. This is truly impressive. We tried everything on the Happy Hour menu. We definitely ate too much.

We had just flown in from Glasgow, UK and really needed to stay up and awake for a few hours to adjust to the time change.

We found ourselves in here. It was very busy with folk clearly just leaving work. The atmosphere was good; friendly lots of chatter.

The staff were really friendly, we had a wait (hadn’t made a booking) but busied ourselves at the bar and twenty minutes later they came and got us.

The tapas was excellent; patatas brava, croquettes and Spanish Omelette. Delicious and plenty for the two of us.

Oh and washed down by a very nice bottle of white Rioja

Would definitely recommend and would return myself.

Thank John M
