Enoteca Restaurant Review

: Minimalist white-on-white, calming tones and natural light come together to create a contemporary dining space that puts the emphasis on what counts most: the food. With their prime oceanside locale in the Hotel Arts Barcelona, chef Paco Pérez and his team capitalize on the region’s freshest local ingredients to create innovative Mediterranean fish and seafood dishes. Order the scorpion fish with sea cucumbers, white asparagus and peppers or carrot gnocchi and langoustines from the à la carte menu. Or explore the gutsy flavors of escudella, foie gras and apple tart, and creamy rice with sea urchin and black truffle from the tasting menu. An extensive wine cellar carries more than 700 references from across Spain and beyond, with a noteworthy range of cavas. Try a bottle of Gran Cuvée from the Gramona cellar in the nearby Penedès region, or explore Riojas from the revered Marqués de Riscal vines. To finish, go for the delights of seasonal fruits in dishes such as lemon tart with violet ice cream in a hazelnut case, or cherries with yogurt and chocolate.
