[UPDATE: Hey, if you came here on a search looking for where to eat in Barcelona, click the following for all of my Barcelona tips: Barcelona's Best Bites.]
Eager readers, the time has come. A.G. Loyalists will remember my post from December where I announced, rather deliriously, that I’d just scored a reservation at El Bulli. And now, one week from this Saturday, Craig and I are heading across the ocean to spend ten days in Barcelona (with one night in Roses for our epic El Bulli dinner). To say I’m excited would be a profound understatement; I’m going crazy with excitement. I’ve been flipping through guidebooks and watching movies from the Pedro Almodovar Boxed Set, practicing my Spanish and singing “I, Don Quixote” from “Man of La Mancha” in the shower.
But now I need your help. My readers have always been the best resource for where to eat and what to do when I travel. Some of the best meals I’ve had while traveling (in Paris, in Austin, in Seattle) have been from your suggestions. This time should be no exception: so please help me below! In the comments, let me know where I should eat–cheaper places are better, but a few splurgy places might be ok too–when we go to Barcelona in just two weeks. Also welcome: tips for what to do and what to see and worthwhile day trips, especially ones involving food. Ok, everyone, thanks for your help. Expect massive Barcelona posts to repay you upon my return.
