It was our last night in Barcelona on Spring Break vacation when I took my family to Bardot. It's a fascinating place. The physical space has a timeless quality to it. You walk in and feel transported somewhere wonderful. The staff - like so many in Barcelona - is genuinely warm and welcoming. The wine list is off the chain. It's in the thousands and changes often ( so my server said) because they sometimes buy just a few bottles from producers. The Priorat that I chose was the last bottle left in the cellar - and it was great for the 25 Euro price. Another nice thing about the wine list - it runs from big money bottles for special occasions to more modestly priced wines like the one I chose. Beyond all of that there was the food - the Romesco sauce for the grilled vegetables is reason enough for me to go back to Bardot. It was perfectly smoky without being overpowering. Thinly sliced artichokes were crisply fried and drizzled with some honey - not something I would think would work but the combination of fried and salt and honey all pulled together. Fried squid came with a garlicky aioli. The buneulos made with curried vegetables instead of traditional codfish came with a raita-like sauce. And this was followed with main dishes of the beefiest steak tartare with crisp shoestring fries, soft cooked egg yolk and mustard mayo. The true show stopper aside from the Romesco may have been the Cod Fish topped with foam. The fish was silky, soft and melted in your mouth but without losing it's flavor. Don't miss the chocolate omelet dessert topped with chocolate pop rocks and vanilla ice cream. Between the people who worked their, the magic coming out of the kitchen, the wine-list and the just different world feel of the space I cannot wait till I get back to Barcelona and visit Bardot again.
