Bar Artisanal Now Has a Spanish Accent
Not only did the folks at Metromix spread the word about Crif Dogs' imminent Williamsburg expansion, they also dug up an interesting morsel about Terrance Brennan's Bar Artisanal: Brennan told the website that his year-old small plates restaurant, located in Tribeca, has gone Spanish because "...I got bored. I always wanted to do a Spanish restaurant and was looking for a space and just decided to make this it. We have a Spanish GM and a Spanish chef, so it just makes sense. It officially comes out tomorrow."

The changes have already taken effect on the restaurant's website, which now features a lady wearing a flamenco skirt: the menu lists such Iberian staples as salt cod croquetas, blistered padrón peppers, and three types of ham, and the restaurant is described as a "culinary tribute to the simple ingredients, rich culture, and robust flavors of Spain."
