Taste of Spain in D.C.

CouncilMag.com

When you’re in the mood for a light meal, tapas – or small plates – are the way to go. At Barcelona Wine Bar and Restaurant, the Spanish tradition is alive. The restaurant’s tapas include jamón and manchego croquettes, spiced beef empanadas and grilled morcilla pintxos. At the Cathedral Heights restaurant, Executive Chef Joseph Paire brings his own perspective to the menu, enhancing Barcelona’s concept in the process, the restaurant says. Barcelona’s menu also includes charcuterie and cheese boards and entrees such as paella mariscos and whole roasted branzino.
