For complicated reasons, we are going to Barcelona August 21-25. Being a good 'Hound, I was online months ago to get a reservations at Tickets--only to discover it is closed for two weeks in August. As is Cal Pep. Quimet y Quimet is closed the entire month. Every recommendation we have gotten is for somewhere that is closed in August.
Help!!!! We have 4 nights--Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. I imagine us doing one upscale, "creative Catalan"--it was going to be Cal Pep, only not. Where might be open in August that is worth going to? I imagine the other nights will be more tapas based---need recs for that. We're staying L'Eixample, but we'll go anywhere for good food and a place that doesn't close for August!
We land early enough Sunday that I imagine we'll head to Barceloneta for a late lunch---recs for that? Again, open in August?
I am so upset---we are mainly going to Barcelona to eat, and even though I know we'll go back, I feel like our experience is going to be really negative with everything closed!!
Thanks in Advance.
