Barcelona Tapas offers a very agreeable way to spend a relaxed evening consuming small plates of traditional Spanish fare while enjoying a pitcher of sangria, a Catalonian lager or glass of Rioja. The décor and ambience are old-world in tone: vibrant, clattery, ceramic-tiled, and brightly-colored, bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to Downtown. The best way to approach Barcelona is to pick a few cold plates, then move on to the hot, before enjoying a shared paella dish, made here with authentic rice from Valencia. Don’t forget the flan or churros for dessert. Tapas dishes are reasonably priced, and generally serve two.
