Bar Isabel, the new mostly-Spanish restaurant from Grant van Gameren and Max Rimaldi, is set to open for its first dinner service to the public this Friday at 6 p.m. (various chefs have been tweeting excitedly about the pre-opening “friends and family” dinner tonight). The long-awaited restaurant—van Gameren first mentioned plans for a “Grant Restaurant” back in 2011 when he parted ways with The Black Hoof—will serve sharing plates in a casual atmosphere that the chef describes as “Old World Spanish Tavern.”
