Greetings, all. Let me first thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

After having traveled to Europe each of the past five summers, the wife and I are striking out during American Thanksgiving this year. We'll be in Barcelona for our first time from November 16th through November 19th. Here's what we have on tap restaurant wise.

A bit about us first. We're ~30y-old foodies and into Michelin-type places, but only sparingly. We prefer local places off the beaten path. We want one or two high end choices and a third choice that really scores well on the ambiance/atmosphere/hip/fun metric. Our philosophy is that a great view/vibe and an authentic meal can sometimes outscore a better meal in a drab setting.

Here's what we have so far. I'll show breakfast and lunch places, too, but dinner is our primary focus.

Breakfast:

• Hotel Praktik Bakery
• Pastisseria Hofmann
• Churreria Laietana (we have to try them, right?)
• Granja M. Viader

Lunch:

• Small plates at La Boqueria (like I said, it's our first time to Barcelona)
• Remaining lunches will be food tours / tapas crawls

Dinner:

• Blavis
• Restaurant Etapes
• Tickets (if we can get a reservation; we're trying ... been trying)

Lagniappe:

• Espadrilles for wife at La Manual Alpargatera, perfume at Sabater Hnos, more shopping at Casa Gispert (you can see who does a lot of our trip planning ... )
• Cava: La Vinya del Senyor
• Vermouth: Morro Fi
• Cocktails: Old Fashioned Gin Tonic & Cocktail Bar
• Nightlife: nothing yet, but a rooftop terrace with a DJ would be up our alley as opposed to a "club"

So, how do we look? On a "Touristy" scale of 1 - 10, where do we fall (with 10 being most touristy)? We're willing to be a bit touristy on this trip given it's our first visit to Barcelona.

Thank you all very much!
