Ñ, the tapas restaurant in Soho has opened a Dumbo location, according to Grub Street. They are holding an opening celebration tomorrow, Thursday, from 7 to 11pm and will have a live salsa band, free tapas, and sangria. Sadly, they replace one of our favorite bars, Speak Low, underneath Rice.
The official name for the new tapas restaurant is ñ/BK and will open 7 days a week, 5pm until midnight from Sunday through Thursday, and until 2am Friday and Saturday.
Per Grub Street:
“David Selig, who is an owner of both ñ and Rice, tells us the move brings him full-circle in a way — after enjoying pitchers of sangria at ñ back in 1999, developer Jed Walentas left a scribbled note on a napkin asking Selig if he’d be interested in opening a similar restaurant in Dumbo…Selig says the menu will initially be the same as the Soho location’s; this summer some “culinary nerds” from the Basque country (where Selig has spent time surfing) will help him retool it.”
