Owner Ignacia Torras said he came from an immigrant family living in Houston since the early 90s and wanted others to experience the smells, flavors and textures of foods from his childhood memories. Torras met his now lead chef, Luis Roger, in 2008, and Roger helped bring his ideas to life when BNC opened in September 2014. 

The ambiance of the restaurant is a blend of Madrid's nightlife and Spanish gastronomy, according to its website. The menu offers a variety of tapas and small bites, wood fire-cooked rice, fish and meats and a long list of alcohol beverages.
