My husband and I will be in Barcelona for 3 days and nights in February. We would love recommendations for dinner. We have missed the reservation period for Tickets, so that is out. We like a combination of fine dining and casual, local dining. We'll be staying at the Murmuri in Eixample, but willing to travel a bit for a good meal or interesting experience. Thank you in advance.

    Definitely dinner at Lasarte -- excellent modern Catalan cooking, perfect service, beautiful space. The three of us did not have one dish that disappointed.

      I have put Lasarte on our list. Anyone else with suggestions?

        We dined at Lasarte in October and enjoyed it, especially the souffle, which was one of the top ten dishes of the entire trip. I think I would not order the longest tasting menu again though and just pick a couple of courses from the a la carte menu since for us it was just too much food. Maybe because it was our fourth day in a row with long menus though.

        Here's another review of basically the same dishes that I found funny because they hit the wall and couldn't finish it about the same place as us ... also their photos are much better as we only had a phone camera: http://www.smilinglioneats.com/2013/08/lasarte-barcelona.html

        We are going back next fall, mainly for the Basque country restaurants, but will probably try Abac instead of Lasarte our one big meal in BCN. The food seems a bit more 'modern' at Abac and I want to try something different. Here's a recent Abac review from a famous English food critic: http://www.andyhayler.com/restaurant/...

      Hisop: It's also modern Catalan. One of 2 places I would return to eat at if ever I head back to BCN, the other being Tickets.
