Outstanding tapas on the menu at Barcelona Wine Bar

Barcelona Wine Bar traces its humble origins to where most great tapas restaurants begin. In, um, Connecticut.

I don’t mean to be snide. But it’s a source of understandable skepticism when trying this new Spanish restaurant in Brookline, the latest outpost of a small chain that first opened in 1996 in South Norwalk, Conn., not far from the New York line. Since then Barcelona Wine Bar has fanned out to include six Connecticut locations and one in Atlanta. There are plans to expand in Washington, D.C., soon.
