The name Barietés is derived from the word Bar and the French word Varietés. The trendy tortillería is situated in the Sant Antoni neighborhood, near Avenida Parallel and its rich history of Barcelona theater. The space evokes the backstage of a theater and classic venues such Teatre Apolo and El Molino are just a couple of minutes walk away.
Barietés is inspired by its thespian surroundings and the egg is the star of the show. Among the favorite dishes are tortillas stuffed with cod, ratatouille or chorizo. Chef Bruno Zubek, who trained at the Hofmann school and worked previously at Xemei and La Dama, rose to the challenge of creating a varied menu around a single ingredient.
The interior is minimalistic with an industrial feel and fun theatrical references.
