Spanish snack spot Moruno is hoping to liven up the former Short Order space at the Original Farmers Market, bringing a Euro-casual sensibility to the corner location. Though their takeout-only window brought some early customers a peek at the menu, this new, more complete iteration will look to expand on the meat skewers and simple sides with a full slate of food and drink. You can check out the menu below.
Owners David Rosoff and Chris Feldmeier share a similar lineage that dates back to their Mozza days together, but teamed up here with the Sprout team (now sans-Bill Chait) to rock a bi-level space (there's a vermouth bar area upstairs) meant to be as colorful and easygoing as a day on the beach in Barcelona. Studio Untld is behind the space, which is outfitted with lots of deep walnut wood and an open, indoor-outdoor vibe.
Moruno is now open, with daily hours from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The upstairs Bar Vermut should debut later this month, with the casual Bar Moruno inside of Grand Central Market to likely follow this March.
