Ever been to Barcelona and now miss it? Or maybe looking for the perfect spot for a first date? Then Barsa Taberna is the perfect place for you.
Eligible Magazine recently attended the media launch for this artsy and intimate modern tapas restaurant/bar and let’s just say es magnifico!
Barsa Taberna presents a sophisticated iteration of a typical Barcelona tapas bar. The sharing plates’ concept allows for an intimate and social dining experience, and guests are encouraged to order multiple dishes to emulate the experience of dining in Barcelona. Executive Chef Michael G. Smith offers a diverse range of inventive and electrifying small plates from around the world, complemented with a vibrant Barcelona-inspired atmosphere.
“Around the world small shared plates are part a range of cuisines: in Korea it’s Anju, in India it’s Thali, in Japan it’s Izakaya and in Mexico it’s Botanas,” said Barsa Taberna Executive Chef Michael G. Smith. “Our vision with Barsa Taberna was to incorporate global small plates and Tapas into our menu, while staying true to our roots in Barcelona and Spain.”
Barsa also offers regular Flamenco guitarist performances during dinner service and a monthly Barsa Soul party, where the restaurant transitions into a lounge with feature DJ appearances. The perfect combination of delicious food, the sharing concept and a Flamenco guitarist will assure your date that you’ve given special consideration to the time you spend with her/him.
Barsa Taberna is located on Market Street September 23, 2014, directly beside the historic St. Lawrence Market.
