Visiting BCN for the first time - what are the must-try restaurants?

Syphrite | Aug 21, 2011 04:13 PM

I'm visiting Barcelona for the first time next month and have been doing some perusing of the boards to find restaurants to add to my list for my stay.

I'm gluten-free, but I don't want to let that completely dictate where I go - although restaurants sympathetic to GF diets would be great. :)

I have a reservations at 41 Degrees for drinks and am hoping to get a walk-in spot at Tickets that same night (a girl can hope!), but other than that I don't have anything planned.

Pretty open to trying anything, but have a particular fondness for pork and wine. Not really into tasting menus, unless they are all about swine. I really would like to have some great seafood, tapas and wine while I'm there and I don't want to visit the touristy spots if it can be helped.

Any recommendations? I'll have a car so I'm not limited by location in any way.

Thanks in advance!
