Bar Celona

Here’s an Old Town spot worth a detour. The room’s done in the black-and-red theme that’s shorthand for Spain, and the menu offers tapas and larger dishes. Try one of the sampler platters for orientation, and you’ll realize any direction is the right one. Beet salad, roasted garlic-vegetable soup, mixed meat grill, salmon with fried polenta, or any of the paellas will make you a more fulfilled person. We love the garlic-smoked, paprika-flecked fries that come with the lunchtime bocadillos (sandwiches).
