Antoni Gaudí designed this Modernista building in 1899 for a textile manufacturer who lived here with his family and ran the business from the downstairs offices now occupied by the restaurant. Casa Calvet has lovingly preserved the stained glass and wood-trimmed Gaudí design, matching it with a cuisine that is equally ornamented, essentially Catalan, and tempered by French nouvelle. Sherry-roasted lamb chops, for example, are paired with ratatouille-filled ravioli and a beet-garlic sauce, while bonito tuna is seared and served with fresh green melon, spiced yogurt, and green beans. Even vegetarians can find a dedicated dish—a ragout of vegetables with tofu and porcini mushrooms.
