The Pink Dress that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the 1999 Academy Awards was designed by Ralph Lauren to recall Grace Kelly. Featured in Hal Rubenstein’s 100 Unforgettable Dresses, it testifies to the enduring appeal of a pretty pink dress that makes the wearer look like a princess.

Led by a bull-rigged Harley Davidson and several other faux bulls, participants will run, walk or stroll with their friends and/or babies on their strollers from the baby stroller center to the Ludlow Street finish line where their efforts will be rewarded with a two-hour party featuring 100 Montaditos signature tapas-sized rolls and an open bar.

Hey what’s up. Do you like tapas and also little sandwiches? I sure do. A few weeks ago I was introduced to this cool place on Bleecker Street called 100 Montaditos, which are little sandwiches that are not only extremely delicious but also very reasonably priced (i.e., cheap). And who doesn’t love a delicious bargain? You can bet that NYU students are all over this place. Because a good thing cannot be stopped, 100 Montaditos has just opened another, slightly more upscale location on Ludlow Street. Let me tell you why you need to check it out.
Named after its signature item, the montadito, 100 Montaditos offers crunchy, baked-to-order tapas-sized bread rolls filled with 100 variations of traditional Spanish tapa fillings including Serrano ham, chorizo and Iberian cheeses. Specialties include BBQ Pulled Pork Montadito with cream cheese, bacon and ali oil; Garlic Pork Loin Montadito with fresh tomato, lettuce and mayo; Serrano Ham and Manchego Cheese Montadito; Smoked Salmon Montadito with cream cheese and arugula; and Meatballs with crispy onions and marinara sauce. So, something for everybody!
They even have Dessert Montaditos made on fresh-baked chocolate bread! Be still my heart!
In addition, the menu offers a collection of salads, dry-cured meats and cheese platters and other Spanish favorites, such as Tortilla Espanola – traditional omelet from Spain with potatoes, eggs and onions (pictured below) – and Paella – Spanish rice with assorted seafood.
If you are thirsty (and you are going to be after eating those cured meats) 100 Montaditosoffers 11 domestic/premium beers on tap; Clara – which is a blend of Spanish draft beer and lemon-lime soda; and an assortment of traditional Spanish Sangrias including Orange Sangria – a blend of red wine and orange soda. Refreshing!
And take look at these prices!: Montaditos: $1.50-$3.00; Salads: $5.50-$6.50; Raciones: $12.00; Beer/Wine: $4.00. Crazy!
