Boqueria Tapas

Travel through the classics and beyond with a selection of seasonal market menu dishes and a taste of our most prized ingredient: 30-month-aged, hand-carved Jamón Ibérico.

A long, long time ago, in Lleida, a local farmer named “Xat de Benaiges” planted the sprouts of garden onions. He submerged them deep underground so that an extended portion of the stem remained white and edible. This agricultural process is known as Calçar in Catalan and is the root of the Calçotada celebration.

Every spring, the harvest of calçots are unearthed, grilled over large open-flame barbecue pits, wrapped in newspaper to steam, and served on long outdoor tables with grilled meats, romesco, and rosé wine (in porróns of course!). We hope you join us for this time-honored tradition!
