Ca l'Isidre Review
A favorite with Barcelona's creative crowd, this place is hung with pictures and engravings, some original, by Dalí and other prominent artists. Just inside the Raval from Avinguda del Paral.lel, the restaurant relies on fresh produce from the nearby Boqueria for its traditional Catalan cooking. The wines are invariably novelties from all over the Iberian Peninsula; ask for Isidre's advice and you'll get a great wine as well as an enology, geography, and history course delivered with charm, brevity, and wit. The slight French accent in cuisine is evident in superb homemade foie gras. Come and go by cab at night; it's not easy to find and the streets here can be iffy.
