Picador, a restaurant at 15 Elm St. which recently changed ownership, has introduced a new menu.

The menu features new entrees and a selection of Mediterranean cuisine served as Spanish-style tapas.

In addition, the restaurant now will be open on Monday and feature an all-new lunch prix-fixe menu for the first time. The prix-fixe menu, called "Express Lunch," which began Dec. 9, features a two-course meal and a glass of wine for less than $20.

Picador co-owners Ray Rivera and Leo Gaspar are working with their chef, Corey Falcone, to design a menu that is lighter but still fulfilling during the eventful holiday season.

"We wanted to create something easy for guests, a quick lunch during the weekday," Gaspar said. "We're also taking into consideration the need for a lighter lunch that is really affordable."

Unlike the regular menu, which allows customers to custom order, the new lunch prix-fixe won't allow any substitutions and is available Monday through Saturday during standard lunch hours.
