In the heart of the Gracia neighborhood, there is a restaurant called Verdi82, a family adventure that opened its doors for the first time in 2007.
This restaurant reflects the image of its neighborhood with its culture, varied population with artisans, artists, musicians etc., and unique architecture with the beautiful balconies where people hang their clothes for them to dry in the hot summer wind.
Only a few minutes away from the Parc Güell, it is an authentic venue capturing Gracia's genuine spirit and reflecting the true Spanish cuisine. Verdi82 originally is a family dream-come-true, where you can feel the involvement of its creators as soon as you walk in. You can instantly notice that a lot of effort has been put into this place.
It is Not only a beautiful venue, but it also features high quality products through traditional and simple dishes. Everything that is served at Verdi82 is homemade and cooked with a lot of care and attention.
All the products and ingredients used to make these delicious dishes are chosen with high quality standard and come from the same supplier since the creation of the restaurant. Each product is special and has its own history.
For example, the ham that you can find on the tapas-menu comes from the father’s hometown, Los Santos, a small pueblo (village) near Guijuelo, in Salamanca.
Another example would be the meat you can find in the incredibly delicious burgers or beef carpaccios they make. The meat is made by a butcher from a market close to Girona. Same story for the fish they use to make what could be the best carpaccios you have ever tasted. Even the bread comes from the same bakery since the start of the restaurant.
Verdi82´s wine cart is carefully elaborated so it brings out the food’s flavor and goes along with the dishes. Long term partnerships have been created five years ago. In order to see this wine list evolve, the owners try different wines and take classes so they can give a better advise to their customers.
Verdi82 is a place where you feel welcome. The staff is attentive and tries to give you the best services possible. This family business truly makes you feel comfortable and almost at home. It is the perfect place to go on a romantic date or just to have a good time with friends. They take large reservations as well; you just need to plan it a few days ahead.
The best time to truly see the family spirit of this unique venue is during the famous “Festes de Gràcia", in August. Even though the restaurant is actually closed in August, it opens for this special week, when millions of people come celebrate this lively neighborhood of Barcelona.
Verdi82 is a genuine restaurant where you go for more than a simple dinner.
It is a true experience to go there on the gastronomic point of view along with the social and cultural. You cannot leave unhappy or hungry from this place that will rise up your expectation when it comes to Spanish food.
