With so many wonderful restaurants in Houston, it’s easy to take good food for granted. But, when you happen upon a place that’s truly special, it stands out. Such is the case at BCN, one of the relative newcomers to the dining scene in Montrose.
If you’ve travelled to Barcelona, you might recognize the name—it’s the short cut for the airport there. And, by the time you leave BCN, the restaurant, you’ll swear you’ve experienced a bit of the authentic Spanish cuisine in all its glory.
The restaurant’s interior oozes charm, the nearly century’s old home is beautifully updated with a modern feel. The minute we walked in, I sensed we were in for a unique dining experience that would go beyond the lovely four walls of the restaurant.
Chef Luis Roger brings an impeccable résumé from Barcelona, along with coveted family recipes (see Chef’s Fresh Gazpacho) that form the majority of BCN’s menu. There are so many tempting choices. We preview a few in the video above, from the lobster “caldereta de Menorca” with Spanish rice to Chef’s decadent chocolate molten cake with white chocolate and vanilla ice cream:
Be sure to make reservations before you visit. Lunch is a set menu (or Chef’s tasting menu) and available only for private parties, while dinner is open dining but fills up fast!
