Yaya Amelia Review

Just two blocks uphill from Gaudí's Sagrada Família church, this kitchen serves lovingly prepared and clued-in dishes ranging from warm goat-cheese salad to foie (duck or goose liver) to chuleton de buey a la sal (beef cooked in salt). The "Yaya" (an affectionate term for grandmother in Spanish) was apparently of Basque origin, as the cuisine here is a pleasantly schizoid medley of Basque and Catalan. Decidedly old-school, the interior is largely unchanged since the restaurant opened in 1976. Serving from noon to 6 pm and from 8 pm to midnight, the Yaya is a welcome relief for the ravenous and weary fresh from touring the Eixample sites.
