Final Thoughts--Eating Barcelona!
After scouring several posts, here is what I think might work for our upcoming visit to Barcelona.
Any comments and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Dinner: Cerveceria Catalana
Early Lunch: Bar Pinoxto
Dinner: Cal Pep or Paco Meralgo??
Day: Tour de Girona/Figueres
Dinner: Cinc Sentsis
The seafood and tapas are so artfully arranged at Cerveceria Catalana that choosing them may drive you crazy--don't be afraid to point. There are different stations, and I recall taking the time to inspect before ordering. The waiter we had spoke some English and was engaging...nice wine list, too.
At Pinoxto, we had the peppers padrone and the tortilla...and maybe something else that looked good that others were eating. It's not a fancy thing--basically a counter but there's all this market energy.

I agree !! Cerveceria Catlana is amazing!!! the solomillo skewers are delicious as well as the mini burger (for the non traditional tapa) I was in barcelona for 10 days and ate there 3 times. you may have to jockey for position to get a stool at the bar(s) but its worth it..
In case you want to do breakfast Tapac 24 (carles abellan's) place is great and inexpensive as well... there is another place i stumbled upon called euskal extea nex to the picasso museum you may want to check out as wel!!!
