Come and try our Caesar salad

In El Nacional we prepare the Caesar salad in a particular way, since we marinate the chicken fillets in oil, so they don’t get dry and we serve it in buds. One of the secrets of this salad is the lettuce being very crispy, so iceberg or oak leaves must be avoided. The sauce of the salad is prepared with mayonnaise, lemon juice and anchovy fillets, and we add the classic croutons -that have been dried in the oven-, the grated Parmesan and the nuts.

An exclusive recipe that you can find in La Parada, one of our culinary spaces.

El Nacional inaugurates Christmas with a special light switch-on

Next Thursday 23rd at 8pm we will celebrate the opening of the Christmas season

Very soon Barcelona will celebrate its Christmas light switch-on. It will begin the 23rd of November at La Rambla (Drassanes), where the city council will host an act in honour of the victims of the attack of August 17th.

Same Thursday, El Nacional will also welcome Christmas with a spectacular music and light switch-on show that will take place at 8pm. The centennial space will be decorated with ornaments inspired in a world of magic and fantasy.

The work done will be tangible among the passage that links El Nacional with Paseo de Gracia as in the interior of the restaurant, with more than 3.000m2.

Custumers will be able to enjoy a Christmas light switch-on with more than 450.000 leds that will be shining until the first week of January.

Wine and sausage, the perfect pairing

Cheese and wine make the perfect couple

Stories tell that in ancient times, when wine dealers offered their products to be tasted by customers, they always accompanied them with cheese so that the strong flavour prevented them from detecting any faults in the wine. This is where the Spanish expression “don’t let them give it to you with cheese” comes from, warning of a possible scam.

Paradoxically, wine and cheese form one of the best duets in gastronomy and this simplicity gives great moments of pleasure. Of course, to avoid undesirable clashes, it is best to be guided by the experts and this can be done at El Nacional’s Wine Bar, where an expert will advise customers on the best way to accompany the different wines, with cheese and cold cure meat cuts, preserves and salted fish.

The seafood paella, on the Passeig de Gràcia

Catalonian-style, slow cooked and with a touch of Alicante

Often we associate Spanish paella with the coast, because it is true that often the best rice dices are found in the traditional coastal towns, right by the beach. But here El Nacional is also breaking with tradition and offers one of the best fish and seafood paellas in the Passeig de Gràcia, in the heart of Barcelona, without having to go down to the sea.

A gourmet break in Paseo de Gracia

A break to taste ‘cocas’ and other delicatessen

Located at the entrance to El Nacional, La Parada reflects in its name the intention of the designers of this gastronomic macro-space: a place to take a break, chat and relax whilst having a drink and some of the delicatessen dishes that are offered on its menu, on which the cocas and the mini pizzas stand out.

La Parada is the most versatile area in the complex, where you can stop and eat at any time, whether you are looking for a peaceful café, a place to eat quickly, a table to enjoy some mediterranean gastronomy, a corner to have a relaxed afternoon tea or a place for an after work drink.

Beer and preserves, our gastronomic proposal

We slip into the Beer Bar to savour the essence of Damm

El Nacional has a Bar of beers and preserves , an excellent beer bar to enjoy a pint of local beer,  accompanied with delicious classic tapas of meats, cheeses, pâtés and delicatessen fish smoked. The menu consists of a wide variety of classic beers, artisan and import, and preserves, such as the special “El Nacional” seafood or the delicious artisan products.

Beer is, without any doubt, one of the most popular drinks in our country; therefore it should have its own space within El Nacional. And to give it form and content, the restaurant could only join up with a brewery with an extensive range, prestigious and with roots in Barcelona: Damm is the brewery used by El Nacional.
