Birds view humans as slobs because we share cuisine with rudimentary hands instead of using the sophisticated, mouth-to-mouth technique of our avian overlords. Proudly pass, grab, and feast with today’s deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of tapas, sangria, and signature cocktails at Ooba, a sociable social in Williamsburg.
Kick-start a tapas feeding frenzy by first biting a fellow diner and secondly ordering some of Ooba's fusion of Spanish and American cuisine. Bring on a platter of churrasco con papas fritas with chimichurri sauce (sliced skirt steak and french fries, $12.95); the crisp, tender pollo rebozado (chicken tenders with honey-mustard sauce, $7.95); or the camarones Diablo (shrimp sautéed in spicy red-pepper sauce, $8.95). Quench ensuing thirst by splitting a pitcher of Ooba sangria ($30, or $7 a glass) with your friends, or double your fun with a liquid Blond Bombshell (amaretto, vodka, sour, and pineapple juice, $9) to complement the meal. Ooba jazzes up boring mastication with special events, including Comedy Wednesdays every other week, hookah hook-ing Thursday through Saturday, Latin music on Friday with an in-house DJ, a lounge-bound DJ on Saturday, and a fizzbin tournament every third Tuesday that occurs on a new moon.
Ooba's décor harkens back to the early days of Williamsburg and of the Earth itself, with wrought-monger accents lining the bars, railing the stairs, and sphering the lighting with orby embraces. Breeze through its dramatically lit glass façade and plush drapings to reach a comfy seat or a booth that will cradle you during the impending culinary frenzy.
- The ambiance was great, the terrace area is great for a cozy and intimate dinner, dim lighting. As for the food, the tapas were great, the Churasco was cooked to perfection, and the Sangria is to die for. – the doc, Citysearch
- This place has a full bar and specializes in tapas but I'd say that you can get a full meal of Puerto Rican delicacies here. The staff is great and very welcoming. – Dominik Z., Yelp
- The tapas are absolutely yummy! – Eliza, Urbanspoon
