Here down the old silversmith’s street in the exciting Born district, stands the second Taller de Tapas. Once Barcelona’s commercial heart, this area is now known for its designer boutiques and some of the best shopping in town. The listed building, dating from the 16th century, was originally a nun’s convent. Converted with care and respect it is now a lively, expansive restaurant. Its floor-to-ceiling front windows look out over a picturesque square where you can eat gourmet local delicacies from the Costa Brava such as king prawns from Palamòs and Nuri’s home made fresh goat’s cheese drizzled with honey in the shade of a tree. Its long bar and kitchen are an island of fine food and wine inside the big central room. Argenteria pulsates with life morning, noon and night. It’s a great place to eat – but a fun place to meet people too.
