How's my Barcelona food itinerary looking?

iatethebean | Aug 10, 2010 08:24 AM

Heading to Barcelona in early September for four days. Have been pouring over the Chowhound boards and think I have a good idea of options and where to go. I still am having a hard time understanding how the timing will work (big lunches, siestas, tapas, late dinners, etc.), but hopefully once there we'll figure it out.

Take a look at what I have below and let me know your thoughts. I know I'm missing a fine dining/gastronomic experience but we are more fans of low key, local, great dining for great value. We get plenty of upscale dining in NYC so want a more relaxed time on our vacation. Also, it is my husband's birthday, so want to make sure we have good restaurant choices for that.

:: THANKS!

Thurs:
Arrive in a.m. Breakfast (but will feel like lunch) – Café Viena
Afternoon snack before jet lag nap – Foodball
After nap tapas – Ginger, anything else good in Barri Gotic/La Rambla? Or going to Montjuic and would hit Quimet i Quiment
Dinner – Tapac24 (chose this over Inopia)

Friday:
Breakfast – La Boqueria
Early picnic lunch – Take picnic from La Boqueria to Parc Guell
Afternoon tapas after Saguarda Familia – Euskal Etxea, El Bitxo, Sagardi
Dinner – Café De L’Academia

Saturday (Husband’s Birthday):
Breakfast on the Go – good churros/cortado near Barri Gotic or Camp Nou (going on a tour)?
Lunch 13:30 – Can Majo (have reservation)
Dinner – La Mar Salada? Kaiku? Cerveceria Catalana?

Sunday:
Breakfast near Museu Picasso?
Lunch – Any of the tapas we didn’t get to go to on Friday afternoon? Cuines Santa Caterina? Bacl to Barceloneta (La Cova Fumada)?
Relax with a glass of wine at Vinya del Senyor
Dinner 21:00 - Paco Meralgo (have reservation - hopefully. Made it on the phone and I don't speak spanish, so we'll see!)
