Run by two brothers who really know their wines, it can be hard to tell if this is a wine shop, a tapas bar, or a restaurant. Actually, it’s all three. Wine-barrel tables with glass tops are arrayed on two stories. Downstairs, where all the hams are hanging, is ostensibly the tapas bar, but you can also get tapas upstairs, and you can ask for the restaurant menu in the bar. Dishes are quite sophisticated for the casual nature of the place—a starter of egg poached in a foie gras veloute, for example. The selection of Catalan wines is particularly strong.
