- No.41 North America's 50 Best Bars 2022
A tree house-like dream of mahogany ripples and curvaceous shelving, Bar Raval’s interiors are a fanciful homage to Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí. Celebrity chef and restaurateur Grant van Gameren has recreated a slice of Barcelona in the heart of Toronto, replete with late night hours and tables made of barrels for diners to stand at. From tendrils of Galician octopus to grilled quail with almonds, everything is designed to be eaten with toothpicks or hands, a refreshingly simple approach that encourages convivial times. An exclusively Spanish wine list includes an excellent selection of vermouth.
