Barcelona Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Barcelona Wine Bar brings to the city a taste of the Spanish style of eating rather than an authentic representation of specific dishes. The croquetas, for instance, although certainly tasty morsels, are rolled in panko, fried and served with aïoli. Closer to the mark is the romesco sauce accompanying a pair of fine, pink lamb chops. Larger main plates also are available, offering the classic paella and reaching to Argentina for a parrillada (various grilled meats). We also like the flan for dessert, presented without any adornment in the classic manner, and the equally classic churros with hot chocolate for dunking. Lunch service offers bocadillos, salads and soups. The wine list is a book of Spanish whites, reds and dessert wines. There's just one rosado, but it's especially lovely with the aforementioned croquetas. Start your trip to Spain's wine world with a glass of Tio Pepe fino sherry (dry), properly chilled, with house-cured olives and bread and perhaps some manchego cheese.
