My wife and I will be renting an apartment in Barcelona for 12 days around Xmas and New Years. We were there two years ago on our honeymoon and fell in love with Cal Pep. Any recommendations on restaurants that are similiar? We also love Quimet and Quimet, so any advice on amazing out of the way tapas bars are appreciated.
I also adore Bellotta Iberian ham - who's got the best in town?
We hope to take a road trip to Roses for a meal at Can Fabes (If I can get a rezy). Any secret faves up there? I read a posting about Da Raffe and will check it out. Any favorite of Adria's is a favorite of mine!
Lastly, any insights or advice about Christmas and New Year celebrations in Barcelona would be greatly appreciated, including markets and festivals.
