At Bar Raval you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve posted up at tapas joint in, say, Barcelona. The décor is pure Gaudí, with an undulating carved mahogany interior that’s both cozy and impressive. From the same chef as Bar Isabel, Grant van Gameren evokes an authentic tapas bar with the spread of small pintxos (finger foods like salt cod, boquerones or tortilla de patatas) laid across the bar to whet the appetite. The main menu is concise with classic tapas like croquetas and jamon Serrano among others—simple but done well—and exactly what you want with a glass of wine.
