Hi all,

Arrive in Barcelona next Saturday AM from Los Angeles, will be there for 5 days before heading to Paris. Will probably do one day trip to Penedes for wine tasting, but would otherwise love recs for Barcelona for Saturday-Thursday. I have the following reservations, which I'd love feedback on, as well as wandering/walk-in suggestions. We're staying in L'Eixample. I eat everything, but my wife does not eat meat (eggs/fish ok), which I think eliminates places like Cinc Sentits.

Saturday - Suculent.
Haven't been able to find much on here about Suculent. I'd like to have a reservation for our first night to help get settled. Is this a keeper?

Sunday - Dinner reservation at Barraca on the beach in Barconaleta. Leaning towards canceling this.

Monday - Day trip to the Penedes region, back by dinner time.

Tuesday - Tickets.
Completely lucked into this reservation. We had a Roca Moo res for that night, but will either cancel it or change to a lunch reservation another day.

Would like to go to Gresca, possibly for lunch. How far in advance do I need a reservation? We'll also probably do La Paradeta one night, or is it better for lunch?

Tapas places & Wine Bars on my list - Cal Pep, Tapas 24, Quimet & Quimet, La Cova Fumada, Bar Mut, Can Paixano, Ceverceria Catalana, Bar Celta, Paco Merlago, Monovinic, La Vinya del Senyor, Disset Graus, Nou Candachu, La Plata
Any feedback on prioritizing?

Other restaurants on my list - Hisop, La Palerma, Palermo, La Llesca (either location?, El Tossal (Haven't seen anything recent about this), Sandro. Would love some current opinions.

We're staying near Carrers Balmes & Valencia, any coffee/breakfast recs? We plan on going to the Boqueria, any other nearby markets?
