El Gran Cafe Restaurant, Barcelona

Grilled Sea Bass with Saute Vegetables and Basil Perfume

That was a bit of a letdown. I had heard a number of good things about this place (9 Carrer d'Avinyó, 933-187-986), but I struggled to find something that I liked tonight. We got a ton of starters, none of which really struck home with me (the Catalan bread was pre-assembled for us and thus a bit soggy by the time it arrived). The sea bass above tasted like it looked: clean-tasting, but nothing to get me excited either, aside from maybe a couple small artichoke halves underneath. The only thing that was memorable was the old decor and location. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, but I guess that there is not much that I can do about it now.
