Miralda: El Internacional (1984–1986)

New York's Archaeological Sandwich

Text by Paul Freedman, James Casey, Ronald Christ, Marshall Reese, Pierre Restany, Jordi Torrent, Gabe Ulla.

Featured spread is reproduced from 'Miralda’s El Internacional (1984–1986).'El Internacional Tapas Bar & Restaurant was conceived as an artistic project carried out between 1984 and 1986 by artist Antoni Miralda (born 1942) and chef Montse Guillén (born 1946) in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. One of the first restaurants to introduce Spanish tapas in the United States, El Internacional quickly became a cultural icon and a creative hub of New York’s downtown in the 1980s. It combined the social ritual of eating with installation and performance art, blurring the boundaries between food, art, design, architecture and mass media. Miralda’s El Internacional (1984–1986) documents the restaurant’s history through the memories of the people who contributed to it. Richly illustrated and featuring some of El Internacional’s most successful recipes, this volume tells the story of a crucial piece of urban history from a city not always able to protect its landmarks.

The Life, Times, and Recipes of Miralda's Tribeca Art Restaurant: El Internacional (1984–1986)

Miralda: El Internacional (1984–1986)

If you were in TriBeCa in the 1980s, you knew El Internacional, the outrageously experimental tapas bar run by chef Montse Guillén and artist Antoni Miralda. More commonly known as "El Teddy's," the restaurant was haunted by regulars including Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat (pictured here with Jennifer Goode and Antonio Buendia), David Byrne, Bianca Jagger, Lorne Michaels, Robert DeNiro, Umberto Eco and Michael Douglas - not to mention the hungry revelers gearing up for long, drug-fueled nights at nearby clubs. "El Internacional operated as a parallel universe," Alanna Heiss writes, "like Bergman's The Seventh Seal directed by Pedro Almodóvar. What I found particularly interesting were the conflicting visions of the sober and slightly self-important downtown artistic community and Miralda." continue to blog

Miralda’s El Internacional (1984–1986): New York’s Archaeological Sandwich

Miralda’s El Internacional (1984–1986): New York’s Archaeological Sandwich

Ahh, downtown NYC in the 80s. Art, drugs, TriBeCa, Tapas. The Glitter Ceiling, the aquarium, the costumes and celebrities. Miralda’s El Internacional (1984–1986) is a featured title at our booth at the LA Art Book Fair, on view through Sunday. "With Miralda simulating a kind of surreal yet sophisticated Spanish tapas bar, you were jolted out of a safe and familiar atmosphere and launched into the movie-star world of madly overdressed, beautiful women and smoky-eyed cigar-wielding Latin men. Importantly, the food was absolutely terrific, and not terribly expensive. It was the restaurant of choice for love affairs, celebrations and domestic arguments. Halfway between Lower Manhattan and The Odeon, the restaurant of record for the serious New York art world, El Internacional seemed wild and fun, and a good place in which to behave badly." continue to blog
