Via Veneto: the "modern classic" celebrates its 50 years of history

The exclusive Catalan restaurant in uptown Barcelona, ​​Via Veneto, is already celebrating its golden wedding - 50 years! - the Spanish restaurant has managed to keep a Michelin Star for the longest time thanks to its magnificent cuisine, its extensive wine cellar - one of the most complete in the country with 15,000 bottles and some 1,500 references-, personalized service and luxury decoration of the place.

The establishment, run by two great professionals, Josep Monje - part of the Catalan Academy of Gastronomy - and his son, Pere Monje - named Best Room Manager in the National Gastronomy Awards in 2013 - has an excellent team : the sommelier, José Martínez; the maître, Javier Oliveira; and the 'barman', Hortensio Ramos.

Dubbed the Via Veneto by its owners as a "modern classic", the Monjes celebrate their 50 years of life with the 'celebration' menu that, they say, defines them as "ourselves" -referring to the Spanish-: "Our tastes , our desires, our luxuries, our personal milestones ... "although of course, all conveniently updated to the 21st century.

The 50-year-old menu - in a changing section - presents some of the great dishes of the restaurant's history from the 60s to the present, directed today by chef Sergio Humada. It could be seen as a summary of Spanish haute cuisine: "An updated way to rediscover our past," says Pere Monje.
