Donostia opens tomorrow on Avenue B

The tapas bar/cafe opens tomorrow morning at 155 Avenue B at East 10th Street, per the signs on the gate. We don't honestly know much about the place other than what was on their application for a beer-wine license back in May.

• Listed food: "Spanish tapas, sandwiches, salads, meats, cheeses, etc."

• "The principal has worked as an employee at several fine dining establishments including Craft, db Bistro Moderne, Estiatorio Milos."
There is also a small retail component here as well … selling "Spanish specialty goods," per CB3 documents. The space, previously home to Zee's Pet Shop (now on East 13th Street), has been meticulously renovated.

Several weeks ago we met the owner (or an owner) while we were out with Kita the Wonder Dog of East 10th Street. He could not have been nicer and even invited us in for a tour while they were still under construction. Again he couldn't have been nicer and seems to know the cuisine and cares about the neighborhood. Sadly they don't serve dogs but we will still go and visit now that they are opening.
