The Belmonte, the Latin fusion restaurant, bar and lounge highlights the ingenuity of renowned Chef Akhtar Nawab, of Craftbar and La Esquina in New York City. Alive with bold seasonings, the menu was designed to push the boundaries of traditional Spanish tapas with a contemporary rewrite using the highest-quality meats and seafood cooked to perfection and seasoned with rubs and sauces that deliver an unexpected jolt.
The menu’s masterful spin of crave-worthy faire involves capturing the essence of classic simple cooking to create dishes with true flavors and the perfect blend of simplicity and passion. The wine and drink list will also evoke a Spanish zest, with sangria and Aqua de Valencia.
The name The Belmonte, derived from the famed matador, Juan Belmonte, considered to be the greatest of all bullfighters, known for his daring technique and close proximity to the bull, eye-to-eye, forcing the bull to go to him, and a game-changer for bullfighting altogether. A bon vivant, Belmonte was also known for his fondness of fine Spanish food and wine. His bold bullfighting stance is revered in films and literature including Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises.
