ABaC, Barcelona, 3/27/14

Located in a small boutique hotel, this is definitely not one you’ll drive by and see. In fact we wandered around the surrounding fence for sometime trying to figure out how to get in! A creative, tasty and very pretty meal was definitely presented in typical 2 star Michelin style – lots of table service, plenty of treats and professional staff –

it was a more elegant than fun feeling place, but a meal I would recommend to anyone visiting Barcelona.
