Spanish fast-casual chain Lizarran has opened the first of five planned New York City locations in Soho. With 200 locations everywhere from China to California, Lizarran operates a little differently from other local tapas joints, in that waiters jet around trying to tempt you with trays of what are essentially tapas mounted on bread, each of them costing $2.50 to $2.75 (there’s a constantly rotating selection of 200 of them). You choose what you want and are billed by the toothpick — somewhat like a dim sum joint except in this case, you’re likely to be under the influence of Spanish beer and wine. The pinxtos range from Basque classics to creations more in the tradition of molecular gastronomy, and there’s also a menu of larger dishes.
