Known for fresh market cuisine prepared in innovative ways, Colibrí (which means hummingbird in Catalan) has managed to hum happily along, largely under the international foodie radar. The kitchen offers a range of inventive dishes from artichoke hearts stuffed with duck liver in French onion and tarragon sauce, to sea bream with eggplant and chestnuts. The soothing, minimalist decor in creams and beiges illuminated by oversized pendant lighting gives center stage to
the tastes and textures of the food. Oenophiles, take note: the wine list contains exciting surprises, such as the gentle but authoritative Taberner Syrah from Cádiz.
