In 1988, the first Lizarran opened in Sitges, Catalonia, a small seaside city about 21 miles south of Barcelona. Now the pintxos (Basque canapes) and tapas restaurant has franchises all over Spain, and in seven other countries. This is their first foray into New York. Choose from cold pintxos at the bar up front, and hot ones ferried around the room by waiters. The menu also offers tapas standbys, most of them tasty enough, and at lower prices than the better Spanish places around town. We particularly liked shrimp sizzling with garlic and chile flakes in a crock of olive oil, and the Galician octopus with potatoes and hot smoked paprika. Avoid the grilled salmon; it's bland as hospital food.
