LOOKING FOR LISTS FROM OTHER YEARS?

Hot List 2009

Dos Palillos, Barcelona

9 Carrer d'Elisabets

Tel: 34-93-304-05-13

At first this Raval quarter newcomer looks like your typical tapas bar, but then you slip past beaded curtains to a sexy back dining room. Here, red lanterns cast a louche glow over the wraparound bar that serves as the only seating and provides an unobstructed view onto the kitchen. Run by an el Bulli veteran and his Japanese wife, Dos Palillos has tiny plates that taste both authentically Asian (plump razor clams lightly dressed with lemongrass and chili) and intriguingly innovative (steamed monkfish liver macerated in sake and tossed with slippery strands of seaweed).
Tip: Choose the shorter set menu—it's more than generous (tasting menus, $52–$78).
