Gastroarte’s Jesús Nuñez is headed downtown, where he’ll helm the kitchen at Spanish restaurant Barraca, opening early next week. Hector Sanz of Rayuela and Macondo, a fellow Spaniard, is behind the place, which — in true Iberian fashion — will serve tapas and more until 3 a.m., along with seasonal sangrias. It’s dinner only to start, with brunch, lunch, and outdoor seating planned. Scope out our slideshow to see the lamb-loin-and-manchego sandwich, seafood paella, flatbread, and more, and check out the menu below.
