Another addition to Sant Antoni’s flourishing social scene, El Dinàmic is tucked along a passatge, just off the trendy Carrer del Parlament. This informal cafe-cum-restaurant is a family affair, a joint sibling venture run by sister and brother, Olga and Abdón Llata, who grew up in Sant Antoni, and recently returned to take their place in this now blossoming barrio. Originally a stable for carriages, and later a mechanic’s garage, its latest guise is altogether more people-centric. Blurring the boundary between indoor and outdoor, El Dinàmic brings nature indoors, with a floor-to-ceiling vertical garden (complete with waterfall) as a backdrop, and draws inspiration from the typical Mediterranean patio, combined with industrial-style details. “We were very lucky to find this space. It was the ideal location and had two main advantages–high ceilings and natural light.” says Olga. Mediterranean and Catalan classics are on offer, as well as homemade bread and cakes, brunch, vermut, and a very attractive menu del día, all made using local produce.
