Bo by Darna
Sampling and creating; food and household goods
The second Darna store to open in Barcelona recently (Darna Concept Store) is located within the Antigua Esquerra de L’Eixample neighbourhood in an area with a rapidly expanding gastronomic offering. This new space consists of 350 sq.m. divided between a Darna Store and the Bo by Darna restaurant which are separated form one another by a sunny and attractive interior courtyard space. There are two separate entrances, one directly to the shop and the other to the restaurant which is decorated with an industrial inspired décor with exposed bricks and air-conditioning ducts. A bar counter area at the front leads to a larger seating area to the rear.
The concept behind the Darna brand is to create experiences around the world of cooking which is why all of their stores are divided between two different experiences. Up till now that has included retail space combined with cookery classes, but the latest project is much more ambitious with the addition of a restaurant and a shop selling a wide range of kitchenware and household goods. Almost like providing clients with everything they could possibly need in order to recreate the dishes they can try out for themselves at the restaurant.
The gastronomic offering at Bo by Darna is inspired by Italian cuisine, specifically from the area around Naples. A true reflection of the Mediterranean and its diversity that also appeals to local tastes. The links between the food culture from Catalonia and Southern Italy are well established, both appealing to a wide public and capable of absorbing the influences from other places. The menu was created by chef Francesco Di Mauro and features the day-to-day dishes favoured by Neapolitans using fresh, seasonal and local produce.
