Deli-rant is an enigma in the best possible way. Part beer shop, part art gallery, part library and a plaza-front terrace to boot, without knowing better you might think that Deli-rant is all style and no substance, but that is where you’d be wrong. Hidden somewhere within the restaurant’s sprawling interior is one of the most playful kitchens in all of Valencia. The menu is full of everyday Spanish dishes, turned on their heads with a shock of foreign influence and innovative ideas that take them to an unexpected and exciting place.
If you go on a nice day, the plaza hosts a lively street scene with plenty of opportunity for people watching. By 2:30 in the afternoon, the terrace fills up with hungry Spaniards. Whether they come for the extensive list of craft brews, the daily menu of 3 generous courses or to share an eclectic spread of small tapas packing big flavors, everyone appears to be enjoying themselves, and the food of course. After the tables have been cleared, the locals stay for a while, enjoying sunny blue skies and the sobremesa; they are in no rush to leave and Deli-rant is happy to have them.
