New Spanish Restaurants Join The Dining Scene in Los Angeles

Bar Moruno and Flor Y Solera are new restaurants to join the city’s vibrant culinary scene, while Gasolina is extending its dining offer 

Los Angeles is welcoming some new Spanish restaurants to its dining scene while current ones expand their offer, providing the locals with authentic and delicious food from Spain. 

Bar Moruno is one of them, Although it opened just last year, it has already developed a loyal following of diners who especially love its canned fish products.  The restaurant also created a fishy martini by using salmon-inspired gin, which has become a real hit. The impressive wine, vermouth, and sherry list offers the perfect accompaniment to the menu, highlights of which are the cod and the pincho moruno (grilled, skewered meat).

Gasolina is one of the new locales, in Woodland Hills. Although it originally opened n 2015 to serve a delicious selection  of tapas, canned foods and paella from breakfast and lunch, they will now open their doors for dinner to serve everything from bravas, dates wrapped in ham, and garlic shrimp. All of this will taste even better when accompanied by a bottle of Albariño. Gasolina also has a market, so you can bring your favorite products home with you.

The last is Flor Y Solera, run by Catalonian chef Mònica Angelats. The goal with this restaurant is to offer dishes that represent every region of Spain. Tapas include everything from gildas, cod fritters and fideuá to fried swordfish and black rice with squid ink and cuttlefish. The menu is extensive, as is the drinks list.
