The menu at Moruno takes its influence broadly from southern Spain, but it’s not concerned in any way with the pseudo-tapas we’ve come to expect from Spanish food in America. The rest of the world’s historic culinary interactions with Spain, particularly those of the Moorish, Middle Eastern and North African variety, are on full display here. And so, while the format — small plates, somewhat international influences — sounds familiar, the food itself is refreshingly distinctive. Click here for the full Moruno review by Besha Rodell.
