Because listening to Sketches of Spain doesn't require Miles of new elastic waistbands, the team behind Marbella (Tapas, Bar, and Music of Spain) is rectifying the situation, occupying the old Ruth's Chris space to plate comestibles with a side dish of tunes and entertainment. The brass tacks:
Aside from the main dining room's banquettes, Mediterranean plant-lined walls, and hand-painted ceiling mural, patrons can pull up to the marble-topped bar and order a bottle from the backing wine wall, or head to the red-lit lounge and unwind on a zebra-print chair, which, thanks to those lights, now really is black and white and red all over!
From French fries laden with chorizo and egg, to Spanish pizzas covered in brava sauce, everything's for sharing, including specialties like platters of Iberico ham, Wagyu sliders, and seafood paellas that can serve two to six people in one pan, though when two people get served in one pan, they're frequently both played by Adam Sandler.
Vinos hail from Spain, Argentina, and Chile, and get tossed into sangrias like the a la Italiana (w/ Limoncello, Orangecello, Barsol Pisco, and OJ), and any of their signature cocktails (Caipirinhas made with rock candy syrup!) can be nabbed up until 5a to help fuel your enjoyment of DJs, Flamenco dancers, and Spanish string bands, whose talent may become waisted on you as you become more so yourself.
