Original Farmers Market takeaway outfit Moruno is all shuttered up for now, as construction on the full Moruno restaurant space gets further underway inside.
The easygoing sandwich and skewer window was a great, snacky fit for the area, and helped to guide newcomers to David Rosoff and Chris Feldmeier’s brand of simple Spanish cooking. After a run that started in July the window quietly closed a couple of weeks back, in anticipation of the duo’s larger Moruno build-out on site, which takes over the former Short Order space.
That will take some time, so don’t expect too much until early 2016, when the downstairs portion of the bi-level eatery will spring back to life, serving those same meat skewers once again. The upstairs, as told to the LA Times a while back, will be turned into a vermouth-focused bar.
And don’t forget about Bar Moruno, a separate entity slated to enter the Grand Central Market soon enough, serving a slightly varied menu and, yes, drinks.
Look for the full-on Moruno experience to land at the Farmers Market sometime in January, most likely. Until then, you can satisfy your craving for Spanish snack sandwiches at BCN in West Hollywood.
