Jamonisimo/La Tomiza question

I was helping a friend plan his trip to Barcelona and saw through several discussions that Jamonisimo had closed in 2012. However, I saw that the website now redirects to a place called La Tomiza.

Just wondering if anyone knows whether this is affiliated, or if there is another place that is as good as Jamonisimo in Barcelona?

  1. From my friends in Barcelona: La Tomiza will be a re-incarnation of Jamonisimo. The owner, Pedro Hernandez, is a producer of jamon Iberico marketed under the name of Martin-Raventos-Unico, therefore, I am sure it will feature his product. The opening date on the website is September so if your trip is after that, give it a try. I know that Carles Gaig uses his product in his restaurants. So does Lasarte. Years ago, I bought some at Charcuteria Semon which has a restaurant in the back of the shop. Might check there or other charcuterias such as Casa Pepe, Tivoli, both in the Eixample.
