Finally closed its starry Comerç 24
Almost a year after temporarily close the Comerç 24, the creative tapas restaurant with which got a star in the Michelin Guide 2008, the chef Carles Abellan finally decided to close it and prepare for the opening by early 2016, La Carles Abellan bar, in Barceloneta.
This is a local one hundred square meters at number 19 of the Passeig Joan de Borbó, which will have a terrace where the bar will be the linchpin. Abellan wants to pay tribute to the stews of Barceloneta, some of which have disappeared. “There will be three or four chefs Guisen well and will work against the client will be zarzuelas, lobster stew, bullit of fish, rice, and probably incorporate some dishes of the lagoon, such as those prepared with eel;. And a section Very simple dishes made with garden produce. ”
Account chef looking for waiters with years of occupation. “I liked the initiative that once drove Kim Diaz to hire over fifty years to one of its local, because I think that experience is a great value in this profession not often not taken sufficiently into account.”
In the first establishment who puts his name, retold as a partner with Javier Cotorruelo (Coto), who opened the Suculent and Suculent The taverna in the Raval. Abellan, who has been one of the great defenders of quality tapas in Barcelona, does not want to give up the tapas, which identifies some stores, but explains that this time give more prominence to stews. The offer of the new bar will therefore be very different from the Tapas 24 (which a few months ago opened new premises at the Camp Nou) or Suculent saucers. “I knew I wanted to go for the Barceloneta and the products of its market, I buy for years but unfortunately can no longer myself down every evening.” That it’s a neighborhood known, which has good friends like Gabriel Fort, El Vaso de Oro, or as Quim Marques, of El Suquet de l’Almirall, and where he owns La Guingueta, facing the sea. Therefore it is no stranger degradation of some of the restaurants in Joan de Borbó. He has attended the phenomenon as an expression La Vanguardia in an interview last June, the transfer of some local life, which have been handed over to Pakistani and continue announcing and traditional, with the same name, and a disastrous deal. “Not that I want to help raise the gastronomic level of the neighborhood, or anything, but I’m excited to put my two cents in a part of town where you have to live historic houses such as La Cova Smoked or so others, others that they are opened. ”
Besides having raised the bar tops, paid tribute Abellán in Suculent, economic menus served in the past in Barcelona’s old taverns, and restaurant Bravo is exploring old cookbooks to recover history cuisine in town. Now is the turn of the dishes from the sea. To return to the city simple and other dishes for special occasions such as zarzuela.
