BCN Taste & Tradition
Some folks we know rate BCN as their favorite spot for a big night out. No surprise, given the gracious old home where it resides, the suited waiters, the fine Spanish wine list, and, overall, its old-world charm. The cuisine alone would qualify. We appreciated our pretty little glasses of gratis lentil soup, followed by divine dishes like suckling pig, as tender as could be, with touches of apple, and a grilled filet mignon with a rich red wine reduction and glazed pearl onions and potatoes. We also liked the grilled salmon with arugula and lemon served on a wild-rice risotto infused with blue cheese. The carrot soup with burrata and mint had us reaching for the salt and pepper, but we happily finished up with a shared apple tart with vanilla crème anglaise and a touch of apple brandy.
