Today, Eater returns to Barcelona, Spain to focus on 15 exciting, newish restaurants and bars heating up the city’s dining scene. It’s been about 10 months since the last update of the Eater Barcelona heatmap, and this time around freelance writer Isabel Conde kindly shares her picks for the hottest dining and drinking her city has to offer.
Among the map’s offerings are a couple of concepts from the one and only Albert Adrià, including a Nikkei restaurant that fuses Japanese and Peruvian cuisines (Pakta) as well as a re-creation of the classic 1950s vermut bar (Bodega 1900). There’s also a one-Michelin-star restaurant that started serving a haiku-inspired menu out on its terrace (Terraza del Dos Palillos), and a more affordable sibling restaurant to the famously tough door that is El Celler de Can Roca (Roca Moo). Not to mention beach bars with elevated snack foods (La Guingueta) and a hot new spot for beer and tapas inside a market and cultural center (El 300 del Born). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Barcelona:
