Tragaluz – Barcelona Restaurant – Interior Design by Sandra Tarruella
Tragaluz Barcelona’s famous restaurant is open again, as happened recently to his “brother” El Mordisco, another highlight among the restaurants of Barcelona 90s. In 2010 it fell to the restructuring of the structure that gives its name to Grupo Tragaluz, successful team led by Rosa Maria Esteva and Thomas Tarruella that, with Sandra Tarruella Interioristas have firsthand managed the entire rehabilitation project to make sure that the iconic restaurant still continuing to surprise even 22 years after his birth.
Sandra Tarruella, based on the original design by Pepe Cortés, wanted to maintain and respect the original concept: a building of the Eixample crowned by a glass cover slide which is the origin of the name of the venue.
On the ground floor with access from the street, a new Japanese restaurant and oyster bar TragaFishhh, now give the chance to appreciate the full depth of the building. The space consists of counters of different materials, roofing type mat, walls with wooden tiles and new furniture.
The main work. has been to make it more dynamic and airy restaurant, located in the most important space on the first floor where the kitchen, with the furniture of marble, wood and steel, gives access to the dining room. How to explain and Tomás Rosa, the owners “was important for us to be so because we love to involve the customer in the activity of the kitchen, so as to see the product and the chefs at work.”
In the main space, covered by glass skylight, some elements of the original furnishings coexist along with new leather seats and walnut.
The second floor, taking advantage of the presence of an existing chimney, has been transformed into a more quiet and private, furnished with velvet banquettes, leather seats and walnut tables, where to eat in a more informal way.
