Nightlife maven Ravi DeRossi (of Death & Co. and Bergen Hill fame) opened his cozy Spanish-inspired restaurant Sol last night. The 250-square-foot space, which is tucked under the new Bourgeois Pig, is bar seating only. There's room for sixteen at a bar that wraps around the restaurant's mosaic floor, with four seats look into the kitchen where Willy Ono will is cooking.

The Menu: Ono draws on the food of coastal Spain for his small plates menu, which focuses exclusively on seafood and vegetables. There are a few savory toasts like one topped with tomato jam and black anchovies; a ceviche of live scallop with scallion puree, Serrano chile, and finger lime roe; and octopus seared and served with chickpea stew, mustard and merguez oil. Rounding out the options are Spanish staples like gambas al ajillo and patatas bravas. There are wines, beers, and a few sakes to pair with the plates, but no cocktails at the moment.
