Recently featured in Forbes magazine as one of the 10 coolest places (whatever that means 🤷🏼‍♂️) to eat in 2020, Direkte Boqueria is a tiny 9 seat counter in Barcelona’s Boqueria market. Bag one of these seats and you could be forgiven for thinking you were sitting in an intimate kaiseki restaurant in a Tokyo back street rather than in the bustling Boquería.
An ever changing tasting menu featuring the best of Catalonia’s produce prepared with Japanese technique awaits if you can bag one of these highly prized seats. Top tip: after your first visit, pester chef Arnau Muñío to give you a heads up if a seat becomes available. Then when someone foolishly no-shows and you get a WhatsApp from Arnau at 1.30 in the afternoon, do as I did and drop what ever you are doing and whomever you are doing it with and sprint across town to put your bum on that seat. You won’t regret it.
Great company as ever Alejandro Alki and Marc Garcia🙏🏻
