Bar Moruno, the one-time Original Farmer’s Market window, is now a Grand Central Market staple named for the pincho moruno (a southern Spanish snack that can be likened to a kebab). Not surprisingly, Bar Moruno is a Spanish counter-serve in the market, with Moorish influence (also, the word “moruno” is a reference to the Moors, who ruled the part of Spain known for… morunos). The kebabs are chicken and lamb, and while they may be the namesake, you’d be remiss to skip the gildas (skewered garlic, anchovy, and peppers) the tortilla espanola, and various rotisserie chicken preparations. Also, the wine: if you’re Sherry-challenged, this is the place to taste, learn, and sip on the traditional Spanish fortified wine, from the tap or by the glass.
