Fodor's Review

When a young Catalan native returned home from the pull of the Paris restaurant scene and partnered with a friend to open Percherons, Picasso's Céret finally got a restaurant worthy of a detour beyond art history. This old-school hallway bistro—with vintage tiling, a zinc bar, solid oak tables, and moleskin benches—venerates Catalan recipes while keeping a solid grip on urban trends. The €35 prix-fixe dégustation (with two appetizers, two mains, a cheese course, and dessert) calls on Catalan basics like suckling pig from Spanish Catalonia's Empordá, Vallespir tomatoes from the French side, and aged goat cheese from the frontier-forming Alberes mountains. If you're short on time, the chef's plate of the day is always worthy of a glass from the bistro's wine list (the most dynamic collection of bottles in Céret). If the weather suits, ask to be seated in the tucked-away but pleasant courtyard.
