Description: Pulperia is a Rustic Latin and Seafodd bistro located on New York City's famous Restaurant Row, 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue. The restaurant boasts a flavorful, rustic menu by Chef Carlos Barroz who specializes in cuisines spanning from Mexico to Argentina. Be adventurous in the bar's extensive collection of Latin Spirits, and delight in our inventive mixology cocktail menu that plays a twist on traditional Latin drinks, like the Pisco Sour. Enjoy a seat at the fresh seafood Raw Bar, tapas at the main bar or a romantic dinner at a tucked-away table. The restaurant is located near the Theatre District and all the great sights of Midtown, proving an easy and perfect beginning or end to any NYC evening.

“Wonderful service and interesting food!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We added 2 people to our group at the last minute, not realizing how small many NY restaurants are. The Maitre 'D, Eddie, was so very gracious and worked hard to accommodate us which was a great way to start our dinner. We had Puka fish ribs- great experience and a delicious fish stew. Victor, our waiter, provided high quality service. Had to leave for a show but Eddie insisted upon giving us some fabulous desserts to take with us- Highly recommend this jewel!!

“Great Food not Service”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Had a delicious meal on a theater Wed. lunch. Service was poor. We made it out in time for the show only because we kept reminding the waiter that we had a show. If they want to cater to the theater matinee crowd, the restaurant must open at 11:30 AM not noon. Great prix fixe menu.

“Lovely first night in the city”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We went here for our first night in NYC based on the Yelp reviews. It was as good as they say. The wait staff was attentive and helpful and the food delicious. The atmosphere is lovely and romantic. Such a mixed crowd as it was so different at the bar than the dining area in back. We took our 10 year old daughter and while it's not a kids restaurant, she loved the chicken and the waiter was very accommodating.

“Incredible authentic cuisine from a restaurant that truly cares”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

We had an amazing dinner at La Pulperia during our recent visit to NYC. After combing through numerous reviews on tripadvisor for theater district restaurants we chose La Pulperia based on the positive reviews and intriguing menu - did we ever make the correct choice. Every aspect of our dining experience was amazing from the unique cocktails (try El Chilango for a flavor explosion), savory dishes as well as impeccable service. A couple of the dishes we sampled were their signature salmon brulee and the Pacu fish ribs. Both of these were amazing and the coconut rice served with the ribs could be a meal on its own. We also had the gnocchi de ricotta and the taquitos de langosta - both just as delicious. The service (from our server "G") was prompt, friendly and very personal - we were really made to feel welcome and that this restaurant truly cared about our overall enjoyment. This is not a feeling I've generally had in most restaurants. After dinner the chef/owner Carlos stopped by (on his night off) for a quick chat and complimentary drink. The pride in ownership really shines through down from the ownership, through their staff and most of all from their amazing food! Don't miss out on a chance to dine at La Pulperia!
