It’s a fitting dining room for one of Barcelona’s top chefs, a sleek and sexy space narrated in creamy tones of white and caramel with architectural cut-outs displaying an arrangement of abstract sculptures illuminated in pendant lighting. A series of mid-century chairs are adorned in custom saddle-like detailing with wall-mounted banquettes that lend an element of privacy to each table. The crowd varies between well-heeled visitors and a more youthful media set of Barcelona locals. 

The Food

An ala carte lunch and dinner menu begins with dishes like seafood bouillabaisse, blanched asparagus with truffle, steak tartare large enough as a main and white fish served with broad beans and artichokes. Larger dishes vary between baby octopus with peas and fresh langoustines with black rice to pickled oyster with glazed pork and an incredible veal kidney with coffee crumble.

Last Word

Open Monday through Friday, Alkimia by chef Jordi Vila offer taste of Catalan cuisine with a modern gastronomic twist.
