Needed: A Few Upscale Places in Barcelona
I need 2 or 3 names of fairly upscale (suitable for business dinners) towards the western side of Barcelona. Near to the Fira Barcelona would be preferable, but is not of that much importance. Price is no object - just interested mostly in good food. Thanks
There is not much close to the Fira. The best without doubt, and one I have recommend on this board before is Agora at Calle Sepulveda 76 (Tel. 934249709); that is about 3 to 4 blocks from Plaça Espanya. Creative cooking with traditional Spanish ingredients. One of my favourites in Barcelona.
You have Peixerot on Calle Tarragona and sde Galicia at Calle Lleida both are good for traditional seafood dishes but are somewhat expensive and overated. As for La Clara on Gran Via, they have a great wine-list but am not that impressed with the food.
Maybe someone can help with the geographical locations in proximity to where you are, but here were some of our favorites in Barcelona:
ABAC -definitely nice and upscale!
Cinc Sentits -again, just awesome. Smaller than ABAC, but wonderful!
Restaurant Magi Vinya Rosa-smaller, not much to look at, but divine!
Hope these help.
