Comerc 24 … if you must drag yourself out of the W

Location: Barcelona

Team: Carles Abellan (Head Chef)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: 1 star

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 3/5

Course of the meal: Pickled cauliflower

If I could change one thing: Location


If you must drag yourself out of the W in search of a Michelin-starred restaurant, this is an obvious choice. Fronted by the same head chef (Carles Abellan) as Bravo 24, it pushes its imagination further to serve up luxury tapas. At the time I visited, I was a relative stranger to Spanish cuisine so I struggled to perceive the differences between this and Bravo, but my partner Owl reminds me that we had an amazing pickled cauliflower as well as the more traditional Spanish dishes.
