“Casa de menjars,” which roughly translates to “food house,” refers to an old-school style of Catalan restaurant that served traditional home-cooked food to the working class during breakfast and lunch. While the modern-day versions are more refined and stay open for dinner, the way they serve traditional recipes and use high-quality ingredients hasn’t changed.

Maleducat, which is Catalan for “rude” or “ill-mannered,” opened right before the pandemic and has quickly become a local favorite. This spot is a great example of one with a short, concise menu of shared plates made from the finest local produce. The menu is full of hearty, classic dishes like Iberian ham croquettas and beef tendon stew, which we definitely recommend trying on their sidewalk patio (if you can get a spot).
