Inopia: Best Tapas
The concept of tapas is so amazing I don't understand why it hasn't caught on everywhere. Tiny plates of amazing dishes. Bread toasted and rubbed with garlic, tomato and olive oil. Gambas (shrimp). Little grilled sardines. An nearly endless array of choices. How great is it that you don't have to commit to one giant plate? I was born to eat tapas. By far, the best tapas bar in all of Barcelona is Inopia. Owned by the brother of the world-renowned chef Ferran Adria's brother, I had seen Inopia on Mario Batali's show "Spain...on the Road Again" with Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Bittman of the NY Times, and Claudia Bassols. We went twice. It's social, it's fun, it's so delicious I cannot describe how good the food is. The wine was not too shabby either.
