A country house in the city centre
Inspired by the name of its previous owner, Baldomero took over from an old garage in the picturesque Passatge de Mercader in Barcelona’s Eixample district.

The restaurant, designed as an urban farmhouse, is a refuge where you can take a break from the bustle of the city and enjoy some exquisite and generous comfort food. Bathed in a characteristic pink tone, this project, designed by its current owners, integrates minimalism with countryside references, weaving a bucolic, relaxed atmosphere.
The charming, open-plan kitchen serves as a meeting place between the various rooms and levels. Spaces surrounded by greenery, where the tables, in various sizes and formats, are an invitation to sharing. A deliberate simplicity expressed through the materials and rustic elements deployed: limestone floors, austere wooden furniture and clay plant pots, among miscellaneous ceramic objects.
The venue receives a delicate natural light, reinforced with lighting points using pieces from Santa & Cole. Cirio Lineal and Cirio Cascada lamps, both with glass shades (linear and braided, respectively), illuminate the main areas of the restaurant. They belong to the extensive Cirio family, made up of multiple compositional sets that adapt to the needs of each space. In addition, two pendant lamps, two icons of warmth: Globo Cesta and Globo Cestita, closely linked to Barcelona and standard bearers of Mediterranean wellbeing.
And Dórica floor lamps, a light sculpture of slender verticality, composed of a metal base, hand-made ribbon shade and topped by a natural leather grip. These pieces are an evocation of Doric columns, imbuing the most intimate corners of the dining room with ambience.
