And watered by the best wines of the Group Faustino.
It would be impossible to visit Logroño and not spend some time on its most famous Street, the Calle Laurel. This narrow Street of barely 200 meters is chock full of bars, with over 65 restaurants and taverns. Each and every one full of tapas and good wine.
Friends, happiness and an urge for enjoying life. This street brings it all to life along with neighboring Albornoz, San Agustín and La Travesía del Laurel, popularly know as the “Trail of the Elephants”. It is said whoever goes there leaves on all fours after having had their fill. Laurel Street forms a part of the history of Logroño, and its gastronomy is welcoming to those from around the world.

Fresh products, regional wines, an abundance of Riojan produce and poetry on the walls. Not a bad start for walk on the Calle Laurel. This bar is a good spot for taking a deep and relaxing perusal of the innovative dishes on the menú, or for a seat at the bar, enjoying one award-winning pincho after another.
Today´s selection? The tapa of fresh foie paired with Cava, the wine generating a freshness as a counterpoint to the oily sensation of the foie. The best pairing, our Faustino Brut Reserva.

From the name alone, it´s not tough to guess their speciality. Nor is it difficult to understand their success. While the origins of the Spainard´s love of the croquette remains unknown, it is certainly a field worthy of study.
Here you will find something for every palette and taste. Each week, the three Loro sisters surprise their customers with a croquette of the week. Always a reflection of the imagination of these three women.
In our case, let´s start of with a cuttlefish croquette accompanied with white wine, our Faustino Art Collection Viura Chardonnay. Guaranteed success!

The name says it all, and it´s more often than not the first sound to be heard from someone looking at this menú of tapas and pinchos.
A friendly and jovial atmosphere invites one to linger over a drink after having satisfied his hunger with these serious pinchos.
There´s no shortage of tapas and Alex Garcia isn´t one for limits…but perhaps the pig´s ear paired with a red Tempranillo, like Faustino Art Collection Crianza, provides a touch of tradition in the most modern of bars.
BAR PATA NEGRA
Calle del Laurel, 24. 26001 Logroño, La Rioja. Phone: 941 21 36 45
Plenty of pinchos, salads, trays of iberian cured meats (of course) and sándwiches are the order of the day here.
Since 1997, the Pata Negra has been creating pinchos and sándwiches to the delight of all who find their way through the door.
The most requested and the one we´re inclined to opt for, the Iberian ham and tetilla cheese sandwich. Expertly paired with Faustino I Gran Reserva.
Enjoy with us a tour of the Calle Laurel of Logroño! Accompany us on this route pairing the most emblematic tapas to be found here and our most iconic wines.
