Last week, Hector Ruiz—of Café Ena and the now-shuttered El Mesón—quietly opened Rincón 38 at 38th and Grand. The restaurant focuses on small plates that are largely Spanish-influenced, but also include some touches of French and Italian cuisine. The menu—which is somewhat confusingly divided into a "Tapas" section and a "Rincón 38" section—is now available on the restaurant website.
Some highlights include: Bacalao (traditional spanish salted cod croquettes), Cannoli (pasta filled with fresh lobster, crab, parsley, ricotta mascarpone cheese served over a truffle-almond sauce), and Pulpo (slowly-braised octopus served with potatoes, citrus aioli, and chorizo).
