Bar Isabel chef Grant van Gameren's new spot is in the works. To open in place of Teatro at 505 College Street, the restaurant is rumored to be a tapas or pintxos bar. On a trip to Spain, van Gameran traveled and ate "in search of the country's best preserved foods." About conservas, Spanish preserves, he says:
We're going to kind of have the option of opening the cans for the table or have a mixed plate with a bit of each can with some pickled beets or something like that. A lot of that stuff is going to be an integral part of the new restaurant. I've just got to work on getting one of those damn vending machines now.Do send intel on this and other openings through the tipline.
