At this light filled tapas bar in Eixample with a geometric patterned floor and white marble bar top most ingredients come from owner Ivan Castro’s hometown of Mont. The village in the Aran Valley is located roughly 3940 feet above sea level and is known for growing pristine fruits and vegetables and for breeding its own livestock. Castro is involved in every aspect of the restaurant from choosing the wine to deciding the daily menu, which might include smoked tuna belly and house made Burrata cheese.
