Formerly of Plaza del Tripi, La Verònica is now a bright light illuminating Rambla de Raval. What many may not know, is that its interiors mixing striking reds with bright, stark whites reveal the restaurant’s connection with a Spanish tradition. What’s more Spanish than a bullfight? The colors at La Verònica reflect the aesthetic beauty from the bullfighter’s spectacular wardrobe. La Verònica even refers to a tricky bullfighting move, where the torero drops to his knees while swinging his cape to entice the bull. It is an incredibly difficult feat that requires not only skill, but also major flexibility.

    The bullfighting homage doesn’t stop there, as the restaurant’s lettering comes from the same typeset used in bullfighting posters. Accomplished architect Julia Shulz-Dornburg, who incorporated the signature Spanish coloring as well as added a luminous bench and suspended light bulbs, created the space. But at La Verònica, it is not only the interiors that are steeped in tradition and surpass the grade; the unique pies have a history that’s been attracting devotees.

    Combinations like fresh artichokes and cheese, apple and Gorgonzola, smoked swordfish and a Reus recipe of caramelized onion and red pepper atop the crispy thin-crust pizzas. There is also a wide variety of salads, and the incomparable Flantástico, a cheesebased flan recipe from the grandmother of Pau, owner Francesc’s dear friend.

    Weekday midday menu €10, take away and outdoor terrace seating. Check out their new €15 fixed-price menu available on weekends, includes starter, entrée, dessert or coffee, bread and a drink.
