Finally, Brooklynites don’t need to cross a river — or an ocean — for great tapas.
That revelation comes courtesy of David Selig, who has brought the outstanding Spanish small plate restaurant, ñ, to DUMBO — under his existing Rice restaurant.
“Our customers have been moving their lives towards Brooklyn, so it was time” to bring ñ (pronounced EN-yea) to the borough, said Selig.
If last Thursday’s grand opening party was anything to judge by, it will be hard to get a table. By 8 pm, the free sangria had run dry and every tapas platter — the sweet and briny gambas al ajillo, the smokey, chewy chorizo, the earthy roasted mushrooms — was snatched up in seconds.
Selig said the new spot would keep the spirit of the original on Crosby Street in West Brooklyn — including live flamenco performances on Thursday.
