"Inside Paprika is a warm interior of red-oranges, whites, woods, and grays - not overly trendy, but comfortable in a tasteful way. Along with comfortable seating, a bar lines the side of the space. Paprika tries to make a strong case to distinguish itself from Gotham's countless bistros; it is one of the better kitchens."

"The food may be rustic, but owner Egidio Donagrandi transforms it into something refined. Think fancy peasant food with ingredients such as buckwheat flour, dry salt beef, smelly cheese and fig-laden desserts - at reasonable prices. The space features a bar where you can taste more than 16 different types of Italian wines."
