After a morning of racing through the Metropolitan Museum of Art, ending the tour with a very poignant and intense exhibition, “Naked behind the Lens”, Mrs. E and I realised that our stomachs were demanding to be audience to an exhibition of their own, a culinary exhibition! Luckily her foresight had grabbed us a table at her local tapaseria, Casa Mono, in vibrant Union Square. Hurrah! Designed to bring the peace and calm to the diner reminiscing about Barcelona and Catalonian nibbles, and more specifically, that of the Boqueria market on La Rambla in Barcelona, one of my favourite hang outs in one of my favourite cities! So, off we went, skipping down the busy streets of Union Square, basking in the sunshine, and finding ourselves being seated right at the front row. Luckily for us, one is meant to order plenty of dishes, which we had no problem in choosing….
One can only describe the city of Barcelona as vibrant. There is an excitement in the air at all times, the buzz of a city that is brimming with history and yet embracing the future effortlessly, a city of music, food, art, design, sun, sand and so much more it hugs you and doesn’t let go and neither do you want it to.
