Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar began in 1995 by Sasa Mahr-Batuz and Andy Pforzheimer Beginning with a tiny, 38-seat wine bar they set out to recreate the feel and the look of an evening on the Ramblas. They worked hard and made no compromises to achieve their aims: sophisticated decor, simple, flavor-filled dishes and a comprehensive wine list from around the world, with an emphasis on the lesser-known regions of Spain and Portugal. Barcelona Restaurant & Wine Bar is an award-winning restaurant with locations in Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC.
