Taste of heaven in a Spanish inspired tapas, Barsa Restaurant  

Written By:Mercedes Lamoca

Come out with your friends and family and enjoy the new beautiful Restaurant called Barsa. It’s an amazing Spanish inspired tapas restaurant, located on Market Street directly beside the historic St. Lawrence Market. At Barsa we tried a wide range of all different kinds of foods from all over the world also tying in the vibrant Barcelona-inspired atmosphere.

Executive Chef Michael G. Smith allows for the guests to taste, discover and share. The menu has a global feeling to reflect all of the diverse cultures in Toronto. The chef uses the finest local and global seasonal ingredients for his unique menu items.  Some of the top dishes that Chef Michael and his crew put together include the Sea Bream Ceviche with pecans, Tiger milk, avocado mousse and foie; and Sangria cakes with coconut tres leche, compressed fruit and mango sorbet.  We tried one of their special sangria drinks, they have  a variety and we recommend them both for winter and summer. Barsa’s philosophy of evolving modern small plates combine worldly flavors with International techniques to deliver a diverse menu guaranteed to satisfy any palate. Come try for yourself and be in “aww”

The atmosphere is very interesting; the restaurant is the joining of the City and culture of Barcelona with Toronto. Nearly every aspect of the Barsa Taberna design has an inspiration, a story and is unique to only Barsa Taberna. We learned the lights were specially designed to reflect its Spanish heritage and light up the place perfectly.  All of the furniture was custom made and the designs on the floor were specially created for Barsa.  The lovely patterned floors were inspired by the mosaics’ that you will find throughout Spain, specifically in the Palace Al Cazar in Sevilla (Southern Spain). All of this while keeping the historic building and condition in place. The building itself is a heritage building that’s been carefully restored. The renovation  has kept most of its 1800s identity of Toronto, which not only creates for a beautiful parallelism with the Spanish influence but also hints at the history and identity of early Toronto.
