For some this little Barcelona corner joint has taken the best from its French-American-Spanish genes. Located just off Passeig de Gracia, the city’s prime shopping street, there’s jazzy tunes, moody lighting and a relaxed bistro atmosphere on offer at Josephine.

Others may take greater note of the invariably spotty service and forgettable cuisine, but there’s little wrong with the casual vibe, drawing in an attractive crowd. Wooden tables and leather sofas hint at NYC, with floating lanterns and vintage lamps adding a casual, slightly haphazard edge compared to the big, solid bar with its glass cabinets of alcoholic curiosities.

Weekend brunch is prime time, but the set weekday lunch menu is good value at around 12 euros, with snacks like croque monsieurs available if you’re looking for a light bite. Its deli style counter has a good selection of cheeses, sandwiches and cakes for a perfect afternoon pitstop.
