Albert Adrià, younger brother of El Bulli's über-famous chef Ferran Adrià, has opened his own tapas bar just a few blocks west of the Mercat de Sant Antoni. Products and preparations are uniformly fascinating, from the soupy and aromatic Torta del Casar Extremaduran sheep cheese served in individual mini-crates to the eclectic Iberian olive sampler presented in a ceramic flute. The table for 16 can be partly or entirely reserved in advance; otherwise you take your chances
with bar or stand-up table space. (Caveat: lines form on Fridays and Saturdays).
