FINANCIAL DISTRICT — Spanish tapas are headed to Hanover Square.
The owner of eatery Zigolinis, located at nearby 66 Pearl St., is set to open a cozy Spanish tapas spot.
The restaurant, called Lenita — a nickname owner Jason Francisco's father called his mother, he said — will serve its own twist on classic Spanish small plates.
The menu includes dishes like pan con tomate — toasted bread rubbed with tomato, and Spanish ham croquettes, as well as Spanish sandwiches, or bocatas.
The 15-table restaurant, at 7 Hanover Square, is slated to launch in March. It replaces shuttered coffee shop Robusta.
CB1 gave the eatery its support for the restaurant's liquor license bid.
