It’s here, the summer 2022 edition of new restaurants in Barcelona! Can you believe they are 76 new places that have just opened?! We have a speakeasy, Cambodian food, lobster rolls, plenty of vegan places, a bar that pays homage to New Orleans, and a big surprise in the end of this list!
Usual disclaimer: I have not visited all of the restaurants in this list, ain’t nobody got time for that…!
Want to go
21 Mars – A neighborhood bistro with cool wines and Italian-style food. I am VERY curious about this one! C/ de Manuel de Falla (Sarrià-Sant Gervasi). Instagram: @21mars.vin.
Flying Monkey – A wine bar that also serves brunch. I very much like the look of it; it’s the team behind Auto Roselló who is driving this project. The brunch menu seems interesting and different. C/ d’Amigó 37 (Sarrià-Sant Gervasi). Instagram: @flyingmonkeybcn.
Red (sito) – A speakeasy, but what’s particularly compelling is the Hi-Fi sound system and the cocktails. This cozy bar is hidden inside the Barcilo restaurant. C/ Valencia 205 (Eixample). Instagram: @red.situ.
Radici – I have a soft spot for Italian restaurants, and I find Radici interesting. You can find it smack-bang on Rambla del Raval 3 (Raval). Wanna have a peek at the menu? Find it here. Instagram: @radicibcn.
Zaatar & Co – Casual Lebanese street food that apparently is very tasty, and for a modest price. I’ve heard good things about it and can’t wait to try it! C/ Balmes 79 (Eixample). Instagram: @zaatarco.bcn.
Comida Codac – They first opened in Poblenou, but have now moved and taken a bold leap into something very different and adventurous. C/ Calabria 191 (Eixample). Instagram: @comidacodac.

Fiskebar – Grupo Tragaluz has opened a new restaurant by the port, and darn, it looks good! I’d go purely for the interior (with Nordic influences), but the food also seems up to par. Passeig d’Itaca 3 (Barceloneta). Instagram: @fiskebarbarcelona.
Casa Petra – Another gorgeous restaurant that I can’t resist! They’re open daily, have a charcuterie shop, and offer delicious-looking food. C/ Manila 51 (Maria Cristina). Instagram: @casapetrarestaurante.

Bandini’s – “Wine, dine, good time” they say on their IG account; I’m all in for that! The dishes look enticing, and the wines interesting. And for all of those who have a soft spot for Sant Antoni: you’re in luck, you’ll find it on C/ Manso 42. Instagram: @bandinisbarcelona.
Kav Ly – What? A Cambodian restaurant in Barcelona? I’m going. Kav Ly does an intriguing mix of Cambodian and Chinese fare, which looks very appealing. Mare de Deu de la Salut 75 (Gracia). Instagram: @kavlyrestaurant.
Doppietta – Benzina has a baby and it’s called Doppietta! It’s right next door, a casual (and pretty!) hangout for wine, cocktails, and little dishes to share. Adorable. Passatge Pere Calders 4 (Sant Antoni). Instagram: @doppiettabcn.
Sciò – They say their project stems from good food and the possibility of enjoying good drinks during or after dinner. The concept here is Italian, with gourmet seasonal dishes, and they had me at ragú tagliatelle. C/ Sepúlveda 159 (Sant Antoni). Instagram: @sciocucina.
Foco – I’m so intrigued by this new bar that is about to open in Gracia. We don’t know much yet, other than that they have put up posters in various places around the city. I can’t wait to find out more! You can follow them on @foco.bcn on Instagram.
