You’d better be a fan of open kitchens if you’re heading to Celerí in this poncy part of Barcelona. You aren’t just given a look into the kitchen, you’re eating right where the food is being prepared; the communal long tables are literally extensions of the worktops. Still, this little party trick doesn’t overshadow the food.

As in the restaurant’s name, fresh produce – all of it from organic or biodynamic growers – takes centre stage. The menu is focused around a handful of vegetables, each of which takes primacy of three interpretations: a vegan, a vegetarian and an omnivore version, the latter with fish or meat.

Showing off the flair that earned him multiple Michelin stars, chef Xavier Pellicer makes every variant a real culinary feast. There’s also a number of excellent starters (both the chicken terrine and the roasted kale are musts) and hardcore carnivores will be comforted by a selection of meat-centric dishes.

It’s a bit pricey – there’s a cheaper, more casual menu to be had in the diner of Woki Organic Market through which you enter Celerí – but it’s a wonderful showcase of sustainable, veggies-first gastronomy. (Note that the wine menu is also all natural.) Booking highly advised.
