things to do in boston: barcelona restaurant + wine bar

Guys. My name's Alex and I'm addicted to tapas. PHEW. Glad to get that off my chest. But really, tapas are just a fun way to eat and share food. Which is why I'm beyond obsessed with Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar.

It also doesn't hurt that it's just down the street from my apartment. I kid. Craig and I have actually been going to Barcelona for years. There's a location in Connecticut that's super close to where we went to college, and we spent a whole lot of time there. So last year, when they opened their spot in Brookline, we knew we'd be hooked. We've been going there fairly regularly since.

It's always such an experience to go to Barcelona. The food is meant to be shared and enjoyed with a good glass of wine. My favorite tapas of all time is the chorizo and figs. You must order it if you go (and then please tell me your thoughts). The wait staff is always attentive, and they really make the experience whole. And the managers often make it a point to stop over at your table and offer suggestions on things to order. Once my friends and I even got a free order of gazpacho because the manager just loved it that much. Oh, and pro tip, always fill out the survey at the end of your meal. They'll give you a token for a free tapas!

In the summertime, make sure you sit on the patio, order a meat + cheese board and then some sangria. Seriously, it's the greatest combination.

  7. We used to go the the one in Atlanta a lot! We loved the neighborhood (Inman Park) and the food is so delicious! Haven't been to the one in Brookline yet, but I'm sure it's just as amazing.
