After getting shut down due to noise complaints, the new Pirata has opened up on Dongping Lu, right next to Sasha's. It's like the old Pirata, with chef Ling Huang still running the kitchen. It's a nice spot. The space feels like a homey Spanish eatery, lots of dark wood, muted lighting, a couple of round tables, an open kitchen fronted by crates of "fresh produce," and plenty of bar seating. Menu remains heavily tapas-oriented. Heaps of tapas, available in either single, small or large plate formats, to accommodate any group.
