This new shop-restaurant in the Born experiments with traditional products in new combinations. It’s a place to enjoy a range of tapas from across Spain, or to buy traditional Mediterranean products with a twist. From pasteles de carne to creative empanadillas de hojaldre, a gastronomic treat is in store whether you choose to eat in or purchase the products to go. The space was designed by Barcelona studio Dröm Living, who wanted to create “a new Mecca for Barcelona foodies,” explained interior designers Laura and Mireia. The interior walls of this former bakery have been removed to bring in more natural light, whilst the restoration of old ceiling beams and the original mosaic-tiled floor reflects the overall philosophy of the shop: reinventing the old to make something new and improved. There’s even an authentic fishing boat as you enter the shop, creating a maritime atmosphere where old and new come together and a passion for Mediterranean food is constant throughout.
