I'm new-ish to Chowhound and posted this to Int'l before realizing I should put it under Spain, so here it is again. Hope that's not bad form. My husband and I are celebrating our 30th (!!) anniversary with a 4 day wkend in Barcelona in May and I want the gastronomic best. It's a special trip and money's not an issue. I'm considering the well-knowns like Abac, Gaig, Alkimia & Cinc Sentis but I've seen some negative posts for all without specifics. I'm aware these may be dealt with in earlier threads, but inexperienced as I am, I haven't managed to track them down. Can anyone suggest (probably for the hundredth time!) which would be most romantic, fun and delicious? We've got four dinner and three lunches, so I'd appreciate advice about what not to miss. Also, are all these places particularly tourist-y? Can anyone recommend an absolutely special place that might be off the beaten path? Obviously, Barcelona has so many choices for good food, it's hard to go without guidance.
