Tickets and 41 Degrees closing? Barcelona must visit restaurants?
Hi everyone - Can someone confirm if Tickets/41 Degrees are closing for good in August? I've been doing some preliminary research on the forum and found the below recommended restaurants.. Feel free to clue me in on other must visits as of lately:
El Cellar Can Roca
El Vaso de Oro
Thanks in advance!
Tickets opens the last week of August only for dinners,and Saturday the 30th for lunch and dinner, the rest of the month is closed.
In your list you have restaurants outside the city, you should definetly add a couple more if you can travel by car.
Els Casals (Sagás)
Els Brancs (Roses)
Les Cols (Olot)
Les Magnolies (Arbucies)
La Lluerna (Santa Coloma de Gramanet)
In Barcelona you could add to your list:
Espai Kru, Bohemic, Vivanda, Dos Cielos, Casa Martinez, Cañete, Tapeo, Shunka&Koy Shunka, Shangai, Bodega 1900.
It should really help to know what kind of restaurants are you looking for too.
Your listing resembles a 'bucket' list, a hodgepodge of eating places. Most probably serve good food or serves a particular need. Maybe not Casa Danone since I have a prejudice against a restaurant owned by a yogurt company. It would be helpful if you can be more specific on the reasons those are on your list, types of food you are looking for, ambience, some idea of your budget and how long you will be in Barcelona, you'll get some excellent feedback.
As for 'must visit restaurants', there is no such thing in Barcelona unless one is hung up on eating at what is the remnants of El Bulli which would be Tickets. Otherwise, every restaurant/tapas/pintxos place can be replace by another.
