CLOSED: A Spaniard is born to French parents

A Spaniard is born to French parents

Minutes ago, I was a bit taken aback after reading that Bar Artisanal has morphed from a traditional French, to a Spanish/tapas restaurant.  (You know it's not a hoax when the caricature of a Flamenco dancer appears in the restaurant's logo.)  And, I have to admit, this news is almost as shocking as my ex-boyfriend's recent engagement.
