Cuisine Types in Barcelona

mjl242 | Sep 21, 201106:14 AM     6

Hello all. I´m looking for a quick "101" primer on the cuisine types in Barcelona for a trip this winter. I know the local is Catalan cuisine, but I´m also reading about restaurants that specialize in tapas, pintxos, Valencia (paella). Can someone briefly explain the major types of Spanish cuisine in Barcelona, along with some examples of popular dishes, and perhaps a mention of 2-3 popular restaurants that specialize in that cuisine, say, in Ciudad Vieja? And I can do searches with these restaurant names to get other ideas and information.

I also read about restaurants where you stand up to eat, like at a bar. Can you elaborate a little on that? Much thanks.
