Colibrí Mediterranean Bodega
Think global, eat local
La Barceloneta is a neighbourhood that is in constant flux, restaurants and bars closing and opening, tourists coming and going, etc. Colibrí is the perfect antidote to all this vertiginous change, a modern taverna that echoes the Barcelona of times gone by but offering classic cuisine in a contemporary setting. Sergio Gil is the owner and creator of Colibrí located on Paseo Juan de Borbón (on the corner of La Maquinista) after having relocated from the Raval area just recently. Colibrí is conceived as a place for locals to hang out, but where everyone is welcome.
Every detail at Colobrí is considered, not least of which is the food. Seasonal tapas and dishes that using Km0 ingredients that echo the Mediterranean, recipes inspired by the location and local traditions; Choricitos (miniature sausages) by Pepe Gil, in homage to Sergio's father; Mussels as you like them; Squid by Soleá: Chiporones (baby squid) de los Hay: Chicken Croquettes with Everything; Smahsed Eggs without forgetting the tribute to its infamous neighbour Bomba Barceloneta. The menu is completed with more convincing dishes such as Carrilera al Oporto or Arroz del Paseo.
Another of the differentiating factors at Colibrí is the Tap Station by San Miguel where diners can pair dishes with a selection of beers on tap: The Classic San Miguel; Barcelona (with aromatic notes of malt), Munich (authentic lager with roasted malt and coffee and caramel aroma), Bruges (fruity aroma with hops and cereal notes), Dusseldorf (authentic artisan flavor) and Portland (colored golden, with floral, herbal and citrus notes).
The sensation of familiarity and well being is not an accident. From the music to the air quality, the service to the décor everything at Colibrí is carefully considered by Sergio whose other passion is anthropology. In fact Sergio has invented a new term Gastropología to describe the holistic concept behind Colibrí that includes tangible and intangible elements, a commitment to the neighbourhood, sustainable practices and good old fashioned food.
