Mont Bar

Top choice bistro in L'Eixample

Named for the owner's Val d’Aran hometown, this stylish wine-bar-style space with black-and-white floors, forest-green banquette and bottle-lined walls offers next-level cooking. Exquisite tapas (a pork and baby shrimp sandwich; French oyster with apple and beetroot) precede small-plate mains (tuna belly with pine-nut emulsion) and show-stopping desserts (Jerusalem artichoke and coffee taco). Reservations recommended.
