Fodor's Expert Review Coure

$$$ Sarria, Pedralbes, and Sant Gervasi Mediterranean Fodor's Choice

Cuina d'autor is Catalan for creative or original cooking, and that is exactly what you get in this smart subterranean space on the intimate and restaurant-centric Passatge Marimón, just above the Diagonal thoroughfare. The upstairs bar gets busy with a post-work crowd of food-loving locals, but downstairs is a cool, minimalist restaurant. Publicity-shy chef Albert Ventura avoids the spotlight and lets his cooking do the talking: delicate contemporary dishes featuring tender leeks, seasonal mushrooms and local fish are complemented by a by-the-glass wine list with interesting discoveries that change regularly.
