It's been a long time coming, and today, a rep sends word that Barcelona Wine Bar starts dinner service today at 1622 14th St. NW.
The restaurant group operates several locations, including a restaurant in Atlanta and several in Connecticut. The menu includes a variety of tapas, including classic dishes like potato tortilla, patatas bravas, and garlic shrimp, as well as some seasonal items like crispy brussels sprouts. There are whole dishes for the table to share, like a braised lamb shank and chicken pimentos, as well as mixed grill items and paellas. Chef Pedro Garzon oversees the menu.
The restaurant is currently open for dinner only (there was a soft opening event yesterday evening). Drink options range from a variety of beers, cocktails like the Aviation and the Barcelona Gintonic, as well as plenty of wines by the glass, aperitivos and sherries. The restaurant has begun posting photos of the cuisine on its Facebook page. Status: Opening today. 1622 14th St. NW; website.
