If you have been to Adrian Quetglas’ Michelin-starred restaurant you’ll recognize his culinary handwriting at DMenú right away. The dishes burst with intense flavors and a truly artistic presentation. And the crew of his new kitchen works with the same dedication. The menu was a joyful salute to spring, with lots of crunchy greens on our plates. Seasoned subtly hot as if to carefully wake your tongue from hibernation.
Passion is involved quite literally. Our starter, a salad with marinated salmon and avocado, came in a heavenly vinaigrette of passion fruit oil. The cordillo de cerdo was served on buckwheat with fresh herbs and mustard-honey sauce, a feast for the eyes and the palate. Which continued through dessert, red fruit with a dash of maple sirup and yoghurt ice cream, or chocolate with orange sorbet and almond mousse.
DMenú is open for lunch only and offers a weekly changing menu from Monday to Friday. I like the plain but modern interior with the open kitchen and lots of light coming in through the high windows. A beautiful place for an extraordinary lunch break with friends, colleagues or business partners. But when the sun came out I couldn’t resist to spent some time on the terrace. Enjoying the meal as well as the midday goings-on on the lively plaça.
