Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar exudes warmth, with sturdy wooden seating and dark leather booths. Its Spanish-Med menu features an extensive selection of tapas. Of these, we suggest the cuttlefish, tender and judiciously seasoned with garlic, lemon and pepper, along with the crispy calamari served with smoked tomato aïoli. Small plates are exactly that and meant to be shared, so ordering several is key. Classic tapas include callos a la Madrileña, tender tripe, gaucho sausage and crispy chickpea; and a maple syrup smoked pork belly with maple butternut squash. Large plates entice as well, with paellas such as a hearty salvaje, with chorizo, rabbit, morcilla and chickpeas. With more than 30 wines by the glass and an emphasis on some of the more obscure Spanish and Latin varietals, the wine list is worth a good look, too. The array of wines makes the dessert list even more tempting; pair a cava with the seasonal fruit crisp or stay true to regional options and try the creamy flan Catalan.
