Food is like fashion in Barcelona

In the throbbing heart of Barcelona, along the trend-setting Paseo de Gracia, is Roca Moo at Hotel Omm. The Michelin star restaurant - in keeping with the city's every-chaging urban fashion - recently underwent a make-over, with a revamped interior design and contemporary food ideas, to mark the hotel's tenth anniversary.

Breaking down the barriers between kitchen and restaurant, the new space unites head chef Felip Llufriu with his diners in one central kitchen-bar.

Reflecting the fast pace of the Catalonian capital, the restaurant has embraced an open kitchen with a chic cafeteria design, where guests can dine at the bar directly in front of Roca Moo's famed chefs - allowing customers on a tight schedule to indulge in award-winning cuisine on the fly without having to compromise on flavour or quality.

With the celebrated Roca brothers, Joan, Josep and Jordi as gastronomic advisers, Llufriu brings the vibrancy of Barcelona on a plate with his unique spin on Catalan cuisine.

A selection of tantalizing menus excites the palate, including a seasonal lunch menu, tapas, a six-course tasting menu and a la carte options in the evening. Expect dishes like suckling pig with sweet potato and mandarin;  mushroom omelet with white Catalan sausage; and carrot cream with cardamom and foie from the main dining room. While the newly installed Roca Bar serves Spanish street-food amid the energetic vibe of the hotel lobby.

The new open-air design was completed by Sandra Tarruella Interioristas, who were entrusted to refresh the space while ensuring they maintained the original concept created by Rosa Maria Esteva in 2003.
