Joan, Josep and Jordi, who already helm what’s been described as the second best restaurant in the world El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, have reopened their Hotel Omm residence which now offers three tasting menus — the Joan Roca, seasonal, and vegetarian menu — themed around modern, Catalan fare. 

The trio has also taken over the downstairs lobby bar now called Roca Bar which will serve “street-style” food the way only Michelin-starred chefs would serve it. 

The menu includes tapas, sandwiches and dishes to share. Another hotly anticipated opening in Barcelona likewise comes from another star-powered sibling duo, Albert and Ferran Adrià, who are poised to open their Japanese-Peruvian restaurant Pakta in March. — Afp-Relaxnews
