This & That Co.
Located just a few metres from Plaza Europa (L8) the tapas restaurant This & That Co. is a gastronomic highlight not only of the Hospitalet de Llobregat area but of the entire city, a place worth seeking out. Pablo Carrizo is the owner and chef, his training looks like a who’s who of Spanish cuisine, its chefs and most renowned restaurants; El Bulli, Ferrán Adrià, El Celler de Can Roca, Carme Ruscalleda, Quique Dacosta, Martín Berasategui, Sergi Arola although Pablo himself is Argentinean. Together with partner Mónica Artero, with an international business background the couple have created an intimate, wide ranging and surprising gastronomic project that includes providing cooking classes, catering and private chef service.
The tapas dishes that Pablo has created here will be recognisable to locals and visitors alike, classic tapas with a contemporary flourish such as the butter fish tacos with humus, tumeric, teriyaki and green curry; the smoked cod carpaccio with tomato chutney and black garlic mayonnaise; Beetroot ‘pasties’ with apples, pistachios creamy parmesan and raspberry vinaigrette; calf cheeks Bao with curry mayonnaise. A seasonal selection that reflects what is available in the market. And for those with a sweet tooth the selection of desserts includes the banana cheese cake with creamy toffee or the black chocolate cake with foamed basil.

The waiter / sommelier is happy to recommend a wine or cocktail from the drinks menu which includes mostly Spanish references.
Accommodated within one of the modern high rise buildings that nowadays define Barcelona’s most recent emerging neighbourhood the restaurant interior is modern, pristine and bright. The kitchen is open plan, interior decoration is minimalist, mostly white with a simple wall paper and a projection of natural landscapes and wildlife scenes. The street terrace takes advantage of the wide footpath here and can be used all year round.
