A find, a definite recommendable find!
Malcolm, in Barcelona, imparts the following communique:
Most of the various guide-book recommendations for the Gràcia district seem somewhat bogus. For example, the Gràcia Cafés page of the DK Eyewitness Travel "Top 10 Barcelona" is either totally out-of-date or overly-imaginative.
However, immediately round the corner from the vaunted (and, today at least, dead to the world) Pl. Rius i Taulet (see page 115) is illadegracia. Admittedly, red-in-tooth-and-claw carnivores need not bother: it's veggy.
A late "menu of the day" lunch at €6.50 a head, a bottle of Bach rosé at €8 ... and Robert is very definitely one's parent's brother. And, unlike the stuff on the shelves of one's local Tesco, Catalan rosé, in its own territory, chilled but not excessively so, is worthy of the quaffing.
