Catalan Menu Guide

We're off to Barcelona day after tomorrow. Sadly we speak almost no Spanish. When we travel to France we take along Patricia Wells wonderful Menu Guide which we've printed from her website.
Is there something similar for Catalan food? Any menu guide I've found in a store has been very basic and refers only to Spanish food.

      1. Thanks so much to both of you!
        I have actually printed both out- even the lengthy one (double sided- 4 pages to a page). I have a couple of unpleasant food allergies and I like to know what I'm eating!

      2. People in Barcelona don't speak Spanish, either (it's a joke). You're better off with English.

        For a general book (not sure about direct menu translations), I'd recommend Discovering Spain: An Uncommon Guide by Penelope Casas.
