5-Course Dreams of Barcelona Tasting Event
Just opened a year ago, this stunning tapas bar in the Fifth + Broadway retail/entertainment complex immediately earned accolades from Thrillist ("15 Fall Restaurant Openings in Nashville to Get Excited About") and Eater ("Hottest New Restaurants") for its Barcelona style. Boqueria has also established itself as a go-to destination in eight locations throughout New York City, Chicago, and Washington before landing in Music City. Inspired by the buzzy atmosphere and great food of the Barcelona "Kioskos" that surround El Mercado, the city's renowned food market, Boqueria offers a full range of traditional tapas. Go here for such classics as pan con tamate, grilled octopus, patatas bravas, and Spanish tortilla, as well as main dishes like pollo rustido (roasted chicken), bacalao a la plancha (seared cod), and Ibérico pork. (And let's not forget the churros!) With its open kitchen and a view of the Ryman Auditorium as a stunning backdrop, Boqueria is an experience that transports diners to a culture of conviviality that characterizes Barcelona and makes it one of the world's favorite cities.
