Barcelona has many great couses, good atmosphere and nice selection of drinks. But gets very busy so showing up early is recommended.

Definitely one of my favorite Spanish restaurants. The tapas were amazing, especially good for setting me up for the paella. I strongly recommend the paella..it's worth the wait. The place gets crowded on weekends, so plan to wait though.

After a great Sam Adams tour we headed to this place. It is a bar/restaurant environment with great options of bites and drinks. Try the chicken pimientos, a must.

Barcelona meets Brookline, and a sophisticated Boston neighborhood has a wine bar to call its own. A historic town located minutes from downtown Boston, Brookline is the perfect mixture of urban and country living. From large estates and recreational parks to boutiques and pedestrian-filled streets, Brookline offers a city atmosphere in a suburban setting. Located in Washington Square at 1700 Beacon Street, Barcelona is the newest addition to this lively neighborhood dining destination. A mix of antique wire glass, steel and reclaimed wood gives our newly built space a vintage appeal. The rustic, polished environment is the next best thing to eating tapas and drinking wine in our restaurant's namesake city. With hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious patio, the space has a European charm which fills the menu as well.
