Bar Mut

In a city full of innovative dishes, Bar Mut is considered one of the city’s best tapas bars. Tucked behind Avenida Diagonal in the heart of the Eixample neighborhood, its gastronomic experience attracts celebrities, well-heeled and deep-pocketed locals. Opened by Quim Diaz in 2005, the bar’s name is a play on the word vermut (vermouth). The intimate retro space is packed with antiques, bottles lining the walls, etched glass, bronze fittings and marble-topped barrels. Tapas range from wild sea bass to the finest Iberico hams, cheese, meats and salads, all accompanied by an excellent wine list and a comprehensive range of spirits. Catalan dishes listed on chalkboards around the bar range from carpaccio of sea urchin to fried eggs with foie gras on montaditos (tapas-size baguettes), wood oven-roasted scallops, braised oxtail and steak tartare. Try the bar’s signature dish: huevos fritos with poached egg, prawn, thin fried potatoes and chorizo sauce. Book well in advance. The website only shows an art film of trendy people drinking and socializing. Call instead. Pro tip: Ask to be put on the list for drinks at Mutis, the semi-secret cocktail bar upstairs that resembles a 1920s Parisian burlesque.
