This is the most personal project of the prolific Iglesias brothers, who also have a hand in nearby seafood temple Rías de Galicia, Casa de Tapes Cañota and Bellavista del Jardín del Norte, this last one along with a certain footballer called Leo Messi. Here, however, they've literally gone back to basics with a menu that's focused mainly on raw food ('cru' means 'raw' in Catalan). It started as an expansion project into the upstairs part of Rías de Galicia and ended up as a place to sample some of the best seafood in Barcelona.
As well as incredible products, when the elements put together on the plate by chef Ever Cubilla – such as the salad of lobster, avocado and coral mayonnaise, and razor clams from the Cíes Islands with mustard and ginger vinagrette – invade your mouth, the resulting emotion will feed both your stomach and your spirit.
