What a great time we had at Barcelona in downtown New Haven-from beginning to end, fabulous atmosphere, attentive and friendly service and very good food.
We tried about 6 of their tapas with some warm, delicious bread that comes with the standard olive oil ( very good quality). Starting with a cheese and Serrano ham plate- which was excellent, then moving on to the following; octopus with gigante beans and olives ( good but not much octopus on the plate, mostly beans and olives) chick peas with cumin and roasted garlic (perfect, the best dish by far) sauteed escarole  (ok, a bit stringy) chorizo with figs ( very good) and grilled asparagus with aioli ( perfectly seasoned and yummy).
We LOVED that there was no sign on the door (sophisticated and rather private club-ish) the amazing and hip music, the NY atmosphere, the friendly and very switched on staff. All in all a sexy, cool spot to enjoy some very good wine and appetizers and have a great time feeling (almost) like you are in NYC.
Yay for Barcelona!
