Good Friday in Barcelona

Hello - My wife and I are in Barcelona and I'd love some restaurant recs for Good Friday. A lot of the restaurants that I wanted to try are closed for Semana Santa. Places like Taktika Berri, Cal Pep, El Xampanyet, Sant Joan are all closed. We went to Hisop already, and out wallet is now tapped out for the expensive places. Any ideas where we can get good authentic Cataluyan food? I ask for authentic b/c we went to Tapac 24 tonight, and while the food was great, the only people speaking spanish in the place were the waiters. we'd like to go to a place where the people of Barcelona go. Any ideas for a good menu del dia open on Good Friday would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

  1. I know that Allium is open tomorrow. They are on C/Call 17 close to Pla├ža Sant Jaume. The menu al dia is posted on their facebook page almost every day. They serve traditional Catalan food made with local and seasonal products.
