The story behind Agust GastroBar goes back almost 20 years to Hotel Meurice in Paris.
Jean Christophe Burgy worked as the hotel concierge and Hicham Houmidide as the chef, it’s there in Hotel Meurice their friendship started and their dream of one day start a business together.
Fast forward to 2015 Jean and Hicham made reality of their dream by opening the doors to Agust GastroBar in Barcelona.
AT FIRST SIGHT – Agust GastroBar
I have to admit that I passed by Agust GastroBar on multiple occasions and I hadn’t given it a second glans, always with my focus on some other place.
Although I have to say I’m so happy that a friend of mine recently said; HEY they do good shit! Because we all know when a friend says HEY, well we do need to try it right?
The locale is at the first blush, cosy and intimate. Dim lights, brick walls, wooden chairs and tables, and forged iron. The space is divided into the bar area with an open kitchen on the ground floor and more of a secluded dining area upstairs.
Their gastronomic offer is simply explained; quality
As Hicham has worked around the globe before touching ground in Barcelona, something we can find trace of in the dishes on the menu. Peru, Mexico, Japan, France, Spain, Korea are a few of the countries
DISHES TRIED AND TESTED – Agust GastroBar
We visited Agust GastroBar for lunch, the waiter recommended us to try their tasting menu which includes 6 dishes, pre-dessert and a dessert for 65€/person (drinks not included).
And we were not disappointed, the flavours at Agust GastroBar are rich and even some WOW’s were murmured as our mouths
