La Viblioteca welcomes us with French text on the door that gives us a small clue as to what you will find inside: a small venue that can accommodate about thirty people in wood and white interior. On the right, a long bar, behind which lies a tiny kitchen, no fire, from which dishes come out quickly and in an orderly succession. Perfect for those who like to enjoy the scenery mise en place. And at the end of it, we are presented with a world of cheeses, the star item of the restaurant. “Each and every one of them is made by artisans with raw and unpasteurized milk,” said Yolanda. Opposite several shelves occupy the entire wall and serve as the swatch to choose a drink from the more than 150 options of natural and organic wines.
Cedric and Yolanda are also owners of “La Baignoire,” and six years ago they decided to open this library of wine and cheese for lovers of both products to bond and converse about the genre of high quality.
Even though the most popular items here are the cheeses served with homemade jams, the truffled bikini, the tartars and the gourmet omelet definitely work as perfect entrees.
Wines by the glass and a market cuisine are prepared with fresh produce daily. A must-see in the neighborhood of Gracia.
