Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best

Description
A restaurant specializing in meat. The glass cabinet for meat ageing is a special feature of our Braseria, specialised in meats, as it allows us to see the product in a direct and transparent way. The star of the show is the charcoal grill, although there is also a wood-fired oven and a griddle. All of the meat is cooked on the spot, in front of the customers.
