I noticed tapas menus in the window of Aliseo last night. Is this a permanent change? Has anyone been?

Aliseo gone for good?
The owner of Aliseo also owns Amorina, and is in the process of opening a place on Classon at Lincoln in the the former Abigails space.
I am going to speculate that he is spending much of his time on the new space, and is thus making his life a little easier by going to a tapas menu for Aliseo. This is pure speculation.For better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
Does anyone have an update on his new place on Classon Avenue?
We have been discussing the former site of Abigails here: http://brooklynian.com/forum/crown-heights-and-prospect-lefferts-gardens/is-abigails-kaputFor better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
I was disappointed to see that Aliseo as Italian was going away, although I checked out the new menu and it looks terrific. I think the disappointment was misplaced.
Hoping that a new menu and consistent hours will allow the revamped Aliseo to hit its stride.
looking forward to trying a revamped aliseo. we'd pretty much stopped going after a couple of very expensive but workmanlike and unexciting meals there. amorina, however, has become a staple for a night out."Here's a little tip I would like to relate: Many fish bites if you got good bait."
After being closed for a while, Aliseo has re-opened. As of March 6, 2013:
2) Prospect heights: Jennifer Cole-Ruiz, an alum of a number of restaurants in Spain including Andres Madrigal's Balzac, has opened a new tapas restaurant called La Mujer Gala. In addition to hot and cold tapas, the menu also has a handful of larger plates, including roasted suckling pig and red wine stewed beef cheeks, along with a pretty killer Spanish wine list. Tapas are almost all below $10 and the larger plates max out at $22. Status: Certified Open; 665 Vanderbilt Ave., 718-783-3400.
Pro-tip: The former owner of Aliseo, is soon going to open a restraurant on Classon, in the space that used to be occupied by Abigail's.For better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
