After a traumatic New Year's weekend experience in Naples where the entire city is shut down, I'm wondering what happens in Barcelona.
We arrive Dec 30 and depart Jan 5. Given that the 31st and 1st are a Friday and Saturday, and Jan 2 is a Sunday, will many restaurants be closed for that full 3-day period?
For lunch and dinner on New Year's Eve, will we be better off shopping and cooking in the apartment we've rented if we want to avoid exorbitant set-price mandatory menus?
When will the Boqueria and its restaurants (Pinotxo, etc) be open? I've heard it's closed Sunday and dead on Mondays. If it's also closed the 31st and 1st, does that mean Tuesday the 4th will be the only day to shop/eat there?
