Iberia restaurant, known for its tapas and Spanish cuisine, is definitely open at 1026 Alma St. in Menlo Park, says owner and chef Jose-Luis Relinque.
A March 18 story in the Almanac said Iberia would close and relocate in Belmont at the end of the year. Some readers misinterpreted the story to mean the restaurant was already closed or closing soon, says Mr. Relinque. Its last day of operation in Menlo Park will be Dec. 31.
Fans of Spanish cuisine will find Iberia open for lunch and dinner, with a wide variety of tapas served at the cozy bar. Popular selections, such as gazpacho or paella for two, are served in the dining room and patio, however, the menu also features wild boar, quail breast and marmitako (a traditional dish of tuna, peppers and potato prepared in a heavy skillet).
Iberia was located in the Ladera Country Shopper in Portola Valley for 16 years before opening in Menlo Park in 2000.
