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 (pig's trotters with baby shrimp; plankton meringue with sea anemone and Mascarpone) precede 'small plate' mains (tuna belly with pine-nut emulsion) and showstopping desserts (sheep's milk ice cream with blackcurrant liqueur sauce). Reservations essential.
