About the Restaurant

CHEF'S PICK:
Stuart Cameron, of Byblos, Patria and Mira, is one of the chefs
who placed Bar Isabel on his list of top T.O. restaurants. 

POST CITY'S TAKE: It's hard to believe that Bar Isabel, Grant van Gameren’s first post–Black Hoof eatery, opened back in 2013. But let's not get all misty-eyed — let's just focus on the eats. It’s easy to load up on jamón and manchego and the marinated mussels escabeche, but always save room for the octopus. A menu mainstay since day one, the whole octo (or half or quarter) boasts fork-tender grilled tentacles, jazzed with grilled dandelion greens and smoky pimentón. Sip on a Rusty Peach — a buzzy tipple with gin, manzanilla sherry, the wonderfully named RinQuinQuin peach liqueur and hits of ginger — and be transported to a bustling eve in Barcelona.
