Food and drink
This doesn’t mean Fosh and his team get to sit back on their laurels when it comes to the food. Together with collaborator chef Nils Egermeyer they use local ingredients to create dishes that are accessible but never boring. In Marc's words, "I like my clients to know what they are eating."
Like most high-end restaurants, the menu changes with the seasons. What I can tell you is that recent (autumnal) highlights included an inspired smoked rice with figs and chorizo, pan-fried scallops on a cauliflower and anchovy veloutte, and a white peach terrine with cocoa crumble and fresh cheese ice-cream. Yumster.
Think laid back and light-hearted - there is soft music in the background, lots of chatter in the fore, even a few tables trading notes on their bottle of wine or what they had to eat. It’s like a dinner party, but better.
There’s a real art to getting service right, and Simply Fosh has it. It is friendly without being overbearing, knowledgeable but not too earnest, and above all, genuinely concerned that you are having a good time.
Central it may be, but C/Missió is easy to miss. It's is well sign-posted from the Ramblas if you are driving (park on the Ramblas), otherwise study a map before you leave.
At 18 euros the three-course lunch menu is a bargain and worth reserving if you’re on a tight budget. An evening tasting costs 58 euros, and if you decide to go a la carte expect to spend 50 euros a head or so. The wine menu is helpfully arranged by price (under 18 euros, 18-25 euros, etc), a welcome strategy many could learn from.
Tables to book
In the height of summer book a table in the courtyard (these go like hotcakes), otherwise there’s no bad table.
