Art and gastronomy go hand in hand at La Penyora, a restaurant popular with artists. The cooking is based on fresh market produce and classic Catalan dishes

Art and gastronomy go hand-in-hand at La Penyora. It's a project by Lluís Llamas, who, for many years, has been hosting exhibitions in his restaurant–art gallery. 'We're bohemians,' he says. True, and they attract bohemians – La Penyora is a restaurant regularly frequented by artists. The walls, full of drawings and paintings, are proof of that. In the kitchen, fresh ingredients – Lluís goes to the market each day – are used to prepare a range of dishes with a Catalan base but featuring French and south-east Asian influences. So you might be able to sample tuna tataki with macerated seaweed or a typical Catalan dish such as tripe with chickpeas; other examples include grilled artichokes stuffed with vegetables and foie gras, sea bream with rosemary smoke, crispy pig's trotters au gratin, and much more. It's a personal style of cooking that can also be seen in the set lunchtime menus they serve each day.
