Last night, chef Jesus Nunez and restaurateur Hector Sanz opened their new Mediterranean restaurant, Melibea, in the Bank Street space right next to their six-month-old Spanish restaurant Barraca. Although the menu includes a few overtly Spanish items, Nunez is also cooking dishes inspired by Greece, North Africa, Italy, and the Middle East. The starters include baba ganoush, falafel salad, squid a la plancha, egg yolk ravioli, and risotto with duck confit. The entree list features wild boar goulash, ossobuco with polenta, chicken with Syrian spices, and a lamb tagine. Most entrees are priced in the mid 20s.

Barraca has garnered strong reviews since opening last fall, and although Gastroarte was not a hit, many critics like Nunez's cooking there. Take a look around the space, check out the menu below, and do send any early reports our way.
