Hello supper_hound and welcome to the Spain and Portugal board. There is much information on dining out in Barcelona already on this board. It is the most talked about city here. Just on the first page you will find many current and active threads on dining out and food shopping in Barcelona. You can also search on specific subjects by using the search option at the top right of this page.
Once you have done your research, if you have specific questions, I'm certain the many very helpful and informed posters on this board will be mare than glad to answer them.
Supper_hound, the stars must smile down on you! To start looking for good food AFTER arriving and to find it! Amazing! :-P
I'm really looking forward to trying Can Josep! What did you have? More info please! A local friend recommended Cal Boter for traditional Catalan and an overseas friend went there. He didn't feel great after that (and Chowhound deleted my quotation of what he actually said. tsk tsk).
Two places I have on my list for arroz negro:
CALDENI, c/ Valencia 452 for cochinillo asado, arroz negro w/ razor clams, media racion de Waygu. I haven't been here yet. It's not far from you altho' a bit pricey.
KAIKU, Plaça del Mar 1 (Barceloneta beach) Tel: 932 219 082
Loved their arroz de chef, made with smoked rice.
