Restaurants & Bars 15

Barcelona in November

Hi!

First i would like to thank you all on this board for all the informative reviews and advice. i have been reading countless posts over the couple of weeks as research for my trip to BCN in Nov. Based on all that I have read, I've also narrowed down my list of foodie destinations. But I feel like I could still use a little more help...

With much disappointment, I could not get reservations at El Celler Can Roca (waitlist) and Sant Pau (closed for holiday). However, there were quite a few openings at Can Fabes.

Tickets is also fully booked and something is happening at 41 in Oct so no new reservations are being offered in Nov yet. Someone mentioned that the restaurant is changing concept, so will have to wait and see. We will likely show up early at to see if any walkin/ bar seats are available, multiple times if necessary.

Having never been to Spain, I would like to try some traditional cuisine but especially excited about getting lots of molecular gatrsonomy I have read so much about. I love seafood and foie and would be up for anything experiement, foamy, surprising explosions of flavor etc.

CAN FABES

Obviously Can Fabes is not the ideal choice for me...but being the only 3* place I could get, I am tempted to still go. I have also read a number of poor reviews which are discouraging.. i haven't seen any reports thing recently. Would love to hear from anyone who has been there this summer.

List of other places I am considering in no particular order:
Alkimia
Hisop
Gresca
Commerc 24 / Tapac 24
Moo
Lolita Taperia
Can Fabes
Lasarte

I wasn't too keen on MOO but only have it in the list because I consider it a substitute for Can Roca. I would be extremely grateful if anyone could arrange the list in order of "molecular-ness" or something like that. And feel free to add to my list if I am missing some obvious choices.

I am trying to plan just 4 dinners (Wed - Sat) from the above list. and leave lunch for jamonisimo, tapas or La Boqueria, etc

Thanks!
