EATER- 13 Places to Crack Open Tinned Seafood in NYC

Originally a chorizo factory, this Jackson Heights institution has been importing Spanish specialty food products since 1971. The store carries some unique brands that represent a vast breadth of Spain, including Cabo de Peñas from Galicia, Don Bocarte from Cantabria, and Agromar from Asturias — many establishments around town source their conservas from Despaña. In 2006, the company opened an offshoot location in Soho, where there’s a boutique grocery store and tapas cafe that hosts one of the city’s largest selections of Güeyu Mar products.
