Barcelona Wine Bar has been up and running in the old American Craft space in Washington Square, Brookline for about five months now. The Spanish restaurant has a well-received tapas selection, vast wine list, and an entire menu devoted to sherry. With around forty tapas to choose from, deciding what to order (especially in a small group) is no easy task. From two visits, here are the dishes that I consistently enjoyed the most, hopefully this makes things a little easier on your next Washington Square date night!

Whipped Sheep's Cheese - Pistachios, Smoked Paprika

The whipped sheep's cheese is like a more smoothly textured creamy ricotta. Both the cheese and the slice of bread served with it are addicting.

Patatas Bravas - Salsa Brava, Garlic Aioli

Barcelona Wine Bar does a really nice job with this classic Spanish dish. The aioli and the zesty red sauce are well portioned strike a nice balance in flavor and texture.

Grilled Hanger Steak - Black Truffle Vinaigrette

This was my favorite dish at Barcelona. The tender and perfectly cooked steak would have been great on it's own, but the truffle vinaigrette adds just the right amount of earthiness and acidity.
