SER Will Service Spanish Food, But Not Tapas

The Ballston Restaurant Challenge victor's place will open this winter.

SER's empty space.
SER's empty space.

SER was the ultimate winner of the recent Ballston restaurant competition which awarded free rent and other incentives for a restaurant headed to 1110 N. Glebe Road in Ballston. Restaurateur Christiana Candon shared a few details about what to expect from the restaurant in a press release.

· The neighborhood restaurant plans to serve comfort foods from Spain. It is "not a tapas restaurant," though. They'll offer a variety of different sizes for each dish, from family-style to individual entree.

· During the day, the restaurant will have both a full menu for lunch (with seated service) and a grab and go section so that busy office workers can get a sandwich, soup or salad.

· The restaurant will have a special "Christiana's Menu" highlighting simple, healthier options.

· The name comes from both the Spanish verb meaning "to be," as well as an acronym standing for "Simple, Easy and Real." Translation: fancy dress or flip flops are both acceptable attire for the place.

· They've launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise more money for the project.

The restaurant will open sometime in the winter.
