Haute cuisine addicts have a new reference point in Barcelona. Andrea Tumbarello, –disciple of Ferran Adrià and Pierre Gagnaire–, known as the “king of the truffle” due to his remarkable use of this ingredient, has opened his own restaurant, Don Giovanni, in the NH Collection Barcelona Constanza. The Sicilian arrived after having made a place for himself in the gastronomic empire that is Madrid, where his first restaurant was selected, among other titles, as “best Italian restaurant of the city “.

Economist turned chef, Tumbarello has revolutionized Italian gastronomy in the Spanish culinary scene and has made Barcelona his new centre of operations. His philosophy is “use the best product and alter it as little as possible”. This product is supplied directly from his Italian providers, thereby guaranteeing dishes with fresh ingredients and intense flavours. In addition, pasta –the star of the menu– is made fresh every day in the restaurant.
From Monday to Friday, it is the top executives, investors and business magnates who fight to reserve a spot at his tables. Economic power circles dominate the atmosphere of Don Giovanni, making it Barcelona’s top meeting point in the business world.
At night time, the NH Collection Barcelona Constanza dims its lights and the atmosphere changes. The magic begins. The gardens are the protagonists and they become a part of the space thanks to the huge windows. It is the moment to enjoy a sensory show. Unique dishes that have conquered food critics such as the Huevo Millesimé, combining egg yolk, caviar, layers of truffle and boletus and truffle cream or the famed Burratta pugliese, dressed with fresh truffle or the much coveted Lasagna della Mamma.
Located nearby residential and commercial neighbourhoods of the upper side of Barcelona, on the weekends, Don Giovanni is a magnet for local families. It is the perfect plan for a date night. Like the “social club” that it is, this restaurant is a quintessential meeting point. The gardens make it a great place for children to play while their parents relax and enjoy the gastronomic offerings. The restaurant also offers complete facilities and services to attend to the needs of the youngest of visitors.
The cocktails of Diego Cabrera serve to welcome us to the gastronomic area of the NH Collection Barcelona Constanza. Cabrera, member of the “NH family” is one of the most prestigious cocktail makers of our country. Recognized in 2011 as the “best barman in Spain”, his bar was awarded “best cocktail bar of the country” only two years later. As Cabrera himself explains, in his menu for NH Collection, “we offer some very creative cocktails, but also the classics”, with a wide selection of gins, vodkas, whiskies, beers and champagnes. And he adds: “We stress a very sophisticated proposal with a wide range of offerings to satisfy all palates”. There is also an attractive menu of tapas to serve alongside the cocktails.
During the week, the hotel’s cocktail bar and its terrace become an “after work” reference spot on the upper side. As the offices empty out, the NH Collection Barcelona Constanza fills with workers coming in for a drink or to relax with a live music session that also includes a prestigious DJ every week.
