New York-style has been slowly creeping into Barcelona consciousness for some time now, yet the Meatpacking Bistro was always ahead of the game. With a gorgeous atmosphere and killer menu, they are packing quite the culinary punch.
Yes, there are so many new places to try in Barcelona, sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming. Every week sees the launch of a new foodie haven in the city. But sometimes you just want a tried and tested classic, someone that has been around the block a few times. A place you can depend on, the perfect spot for a weekend brunch.
Another week has flown by! Hope you all have great plans, fun stuff to do with friends and family. I’m gearing up for a photo shoot tomorrow for one of my clients, Ainhoa Herrera. And the city is going to be decked in light for the annual Santa Eulalia festivities.
Just to have some light fun today, check out the menu collection of the Los Angeles Public Library. If you love food and all things vintage, you’ll have a great time pouring over the lovely images and styles. Perfect inspiration for a Friday in February.
After three and a half months of waiting, it was finally time to enjoy Tickets Restaurant Barcelona. Although this new proposal of the Adrià brothers has been open only a short time, a waiting list appeared almost immediately, filled with people anxious to sample the delights that, until recently, have been almost off-limits for the general public.
Searching for the biggest burgers in Barcelona? Well, El Kiosko Hamburguesería is your place. Located near Plaza Palau, right on the border between Barceloneta and Borne, this small restaurant has been packing quite a punch since the beginning of 2011.
Federal Cafe is a new lunch spot – restaurant – bar which has just opened this week and is located on Calle Parlament 39, xaflán with Comte Borrell, very close to the old Sant Antoni market building. Named after a small town in Australia, the two Australians that run this new place should seem familiar, being part and parcel of Papabubble. Three floors of absolute heaven and culinary bliss. The windows are completely open, so one can sit and comfortably watch the street. The structure has been organized so that cross currents of breeze sweep through each floor, allowing for a very agreeable temperature, even in the heat. Every detail has tender, loving care, from the bouquets of raspberries boughs placed in jugs to the open-plan coffee area to the recycled napkins. There are several newspapers and magazines available, even the New Yorker!
