New Restaurants in Barcelona - January 2017

It's that time again! New places keep popping up in the city, and I've made an overview of the ones I've heard about. If you know of one that's not on the list let me know!

Crudo Bar - They opened one in Valencia that was a success, and now they're coming to Barcelona. It looks really great, with ceviches, tartars, carpaccios etc. Instagram @crudobarcelona Gran via de les Corts Catalanes 654. 

L'Escale - French market cuisine (yay!) and French Tapas bar. Sounds promising, right? They haven't opened yet, but you can follow them on @lescale_restaurant_bcn on Instagram. Passage de Lluis Pellicer 12. 

Popeye - Les Corts is the new up-and-coming neighbourhood restaurantwise. Fresh market food, looks cool! Instagram: @popeyerestaurante. C/Taquigraf Marti 32.

Pockets - Good bread with good stuffings is their speciality. Instagram @pocketsbcn. Provença 322.

La Despensa de Mitre - A space where you can get specialty coffee, cocktails, buy delicatessen and eat what seems to be really good and interesting food. INstragram @ladespensademitre Ronda de General Mitre 114.

Chingon - Authentic Californian Cuisine they say: fun Tex Mex plus burgers, parmesan truffle fries and such, looks cool! Instagram @chingonfood C/ Pallars 329.

BocaBoca Tapas & Cocktails - The cocktails look really impressive, and the food interesting (tapas). Seems casual. Instagram @bocabocabarcelona. Casanova 226.

Flax and Kale a Porter - The Teresa Carles empire is expanding! Opens February 3rd inside an H&M store. Healthy food to go, on Paseo de Gracia 11. Instagram: @flaxandkaleaporter.

Mastico Barcelona - The space looks beautiful and so does the food! That kind of fresh-, Auto Rosellon kind of style. Instagram: C/ Larforja 62

Bodega Notariat - A new brew pub that apparently is really cosy. They have belgian beers too, and wine, mezcal... And the food looks very different and interesting. Instagram: @notariat_bodega. C/Notariat 1.

Sports Bar - I'm sure you've heard about this place a million times (many claim their pizzas are the best in the city, including several italians I know). Now they've opened up one in Diagonal too.  Av. Diagonal 123. 

Kokka - I wanted to mention this one too even though it opened already 6 months ago. Grupo San Telmo opened a new restaurant in the Gotico called Kokka, with focus on Nikkei food. Chef Juan Miguel Otivo Amane seems to be a real gem. C/ Avinyó 30.
