Did Marbella's in Stratford close? This started out with some very good Spanish food (and a great Mark Bittman NYT review), then last time I went there they had changed their menu, it was wierd, they had added some Italian dishes and Mexican dishes and no longer served some items they had done so well (like their grilled octopus which was great). I got the feeling they had some clueless restaurant consultant come in and tell them that the menu was too Spanish and needed to be changed.
anyhow, now it appears closed. any news?
