The Life, Times, and Recipes of Miralda's Tribeca Art Restaurant: 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."
