My Barcelona list needs help

WileysHungryAgain | Feb 1, 2010 09:33 AM

It's been years since I last was in Barcelona, and now I'll be returning several times in the next 8 months or so.

I have spent countless hours gleaning information from food & travel magazines, blogs, books & websites (especially Chowhound) to the point where I have lost my all bearings as to what is good, bad or otherwise. I’ve read so much literature, that I’m no longer sure whether some of these restaurants are in Barcelona, or that they’re even restaurants at all for that matter.

I know there are no definitive’s when it comes to opinions on restaurants, and I was hoping not to start a whole debate as to what is what, when and where... If possible.

Having said that, would some kind, wise and knowledgeable hound, edit this list into some classifications, such as:

Hi end / Low End
Sit down / Stand up
Tapas
Seafood etc
Specialties
Too touristy (ex: Cal Pep)
Over hyped (ex: Cal Pep)

Feel free to recommendations your faves, as I have undoubtedly omitted many.
