I am going to "decompress" in Barcelona from late Nov 2000 to Jan 4 2001. I am looking for truly exceptional dining experiences where the flavor ( and service ) of the region may be realized. Being that I will be there for 5 weeks I am hoping to find places in all ranges from "celebratory" to "casual" neighborhood experiences. Any suggestions, including how/where to shop for groceries is most welcome. And if, by chance, anyone knows of a connection for an apartment for short term let in a great neighborhood...send it my way PLEASE!
