Restaurant description

Els Quatre Gats opened on June 12th 1897 in the Montsió Street in a building designed by the architect Puig i Cadafalch. It drew attention because it was unusual, refined and artistic details combined with objects could be seen as characteristic of a traditional hostel. It was a little more than an «imitation of Le Chat noir» as Rubén Darío, one of the first distinguished visitors, said; otherwise it would not have become a legendary place. Everyone that came to Barcelona visited the place; the long list would be endless. They expected a different thing, not just a good food. As Rusiñol said, what was essential was «the food of the spirit». This was also the intention of Pere Romeu, who sat with his customers and presided over social gatherings in which «the world was fixed». Shows of Chinese shadows and of marionettes were also made and, to announce them, Ramon Casas painted posters following the fashion of the time.
