Bonay & Miralda ‘El Internacional’ Tapas Bar & Restaurant was an anthropological and artistic experiment by Catalan artist Antoni Miralda and chef Montse Guillén. Miralda transformed a restaurant into a work of art, making it one of the most charismatic spots in New Yorks TriBeCa neighborhood in the 1980’s. Frequented by countless celebrities as Warhol, Basquiat, Keith Haring, David Lynch and Robert de Niro, among many others, playing a key role in the social and cultural transformation of this industrial neighborhood.
