BCN Visitors - Irène

My friend Irène, aka Le Boobi, came to visit for the weekend: Boobi & I met while working together at Getty Images in London, we became really good friends and have luckily stayed in touch as I've country-hopped. This was Boobi's first weekend away sans bébé so the plan was to have no plans, just lazy strolls around the city and good food. We were lucky to have amazing weather on Saturday so we got to walk along the beach, through the Born and back into the Eixample. I made a dinner reservation for us at Mont Bar, a restaurant around the corner from mine serving tapas with an edge - very flavourful & eccentric food in a cosy brasserie setting, with a great wine selection - we were excited to try the web revered smoked tuna carpaccio which did not leave us wanting + I continued in my research of Ribera del Dueros, discovering Bodega Los Astrales' "Astrales Christina 2011", like an enveloping hug on a cold evening! Reviens nous voir, Boobi!
