Tel: 34 93 319 6600's insider take:

Michelin-starred chef Jordi Cruz is one of the talented young guns of new Catalan cuisine. His latest restaurant, on the threshold of the Tibidabo neighborhood, is set in an elegant turn-of-the-century mansion that also houses the city's first gastro-hotel. The restaurant, a hushed and expensive affair, is located in a modernist, natural wood–clad annex in a garden where guests can partake of Cruz's singular cuisine: Options may include pigeon stuffed with foie gras and porcini mushrooms, milk-fed lamb infused with vanilla, and eel with Iberian ham ravioli. It's also possible to observe Cruz at work by entering his gleaming, steel state-of-the-art kitchen via a special walkway that connects the kitchen to the hotel's ground floor (be warned, waiters use this ramp, too).—Suzanne Wales
