The answer lies in the culinary philosophy. Gat Blau is Slow Food®, ecological, local, socially conscious eating, from farm to table. There may be meat on the menu, but it’s the best meat money can buy (for the world, for the local economy and for you). And there is a special text box dedicated to the reduïm la petjada dish of the day for those interested in reducing their footprint even more. A thoughtful note from the chef accompanies some statistics you need to read: the ecological footprint measures the hectares per person needed to produce that which they consume. The average in Barcelona is 5.4 hectares. To make Earth a sustainable planet given the land available and the current population, that number should be 1.8. So, if everyone on the planet consumed like the average barceloní we would need two more planets.
By the way, the food is outstanding, as you can imagine given the amount of thought behind the materia prima. And, if you still think eating well requires your wallet die a thousand deaths, think again; their menú is plentiful with a caña de Cervesa de Montseny, a carafe of water and dessert or coffee for €12.50.
