David Ansill’s New Menu Drops At Bar Ferdinand

The menus at Bar Ferdinand have been in a state of flux ever since itinerant chef David Ansill came back from an ill-fated voyage to Jamaica to take over kitchen operations at the NoLibs tapas joint. There have been plenty of tasting menus put up by the back-of-the-house crew, but now it looks like Ansill has put his stamp on a final version of the regular board as well.

As things stand right now, the menu offers a wealth of small plates, plus family-style share plates (like wood-fired whole-roasted fish and Valencian paella) and a nightly tasting menu designed by Ansil that will go for just $45.
