Yesterday I had to make an unexpected detour through Gilroy to buy some synthetic oil at Kragen. My mother was with me and since it's been some time since we'd been through town, we decided to head south on the Monterey Hwy. At one of the stoplights in downtown, a lovely old building marked as "1905" also had a variety of signs indicating that the restaurant it houses, Lizarran, is now open for business. When I got home and looked it up, apparently this is a Spanish chain of tapas/pintxo bars, based in Barcelona. Fullerton is home to the first US location; another will open in Manhattan. The others are all abroad. According to Fullerton's FB page, the Gilroy Lizarran opened in November.
Has anyone tried the Gilroy branch yet?
