Back to Barcelona -- new recommendations?

#1 Post by Kevin Sidders » May 31st, 2019, 6:30 am

Was there 6 months ago and prior threads here provided some excellent wine and food recommendations (Gresca and Monvinic, specifically). Curious if anyone has been recently or what other ideas might be worth considering.

Thanks in advance!

Can Cisa - Bar Brutal is also in the Gothic Quarter. Mostly Natural/Biodynamic wines, but an inch thick list full of gems. Lots of Jura/Ganevat, Northern Rhone, Austria and of course Spain. Food was good as well.

We're there in November so any recs appreciated. Our hotel is the Marriott Edition. Our plan is to take one or two day trips.

Petit Comitè de Nandu Jubany was sort of a hidden gem when we were there 2 years back-upscale versions of traditional Catalonian food, freshest big shrimp, I can still remember it, solid winelist and really nice people. Quimet et Quimet also in Gothic is old school wine and small plates (tin seafood concoction). (BTW, our Catalonian friends tell us tapas brought to Barcelona by Franco and is not authentic.) Q&Q definitely has been discovered, however, and can be a bit of a zoo, though there are still locals who also frequent. Go early and be prepared. Our favorite stand at La Boqueria is not the one every body recommends (Bar Pinotxo), which we also tried, but Kiosko Universal in far corner--again, just incredible seafood, and also sausages and mushrooms.

Do you need to book well ahead for the restaurants? We're hoping November will be less crowded and less touristy.

Teóric Taverna. Incredible dinner when I was in Barcelona this summer. Sit outside if the weather allows. Will need reservations in advance
