ElBulli Booked - What Instead in Barcelona?

HalfShell | Jan 30, 2007 12:48 PM

Can't get a reservation to ElBulli--which isn't even in Barcelona, but we would have made the trip to go. I have to say, I'm curious about Adria and Catalan avant-garde (molecular gastronomy and all that), but short of some foams and gelees that I've seen here in New York kitchens, I'm a little baffled by the cuisine.

BUT, that's all the more reason to try a wacky restaurant in Barcelona when I'm there. One that is typical of this movement and something I'd be able to tell friends back home. Would be willing to do a restaurant that is expensive and fancy, though perhaps not as astronomical or decadent as ElBulli. What are the best restaurants of this ilk in Barcelona? I'm going in March, and there will be two of us dining.
