Cobras & Matadors, the Spanish bistro that was one of our favorite new restaurants of 2022, has quietly reopened in the former Spartina space on Melrose after shuttering early last year. Several of the hits from the old menu have returned as well, like the garlicky gambas, crispy green lentils with shredded bits of jamón, and the excellent roasted chicken bathed in tangy jus. We'll be back for a full review soon.
