Barcelona next week....Please review plans

I just came back last week . We ate at
Con Fabes
Gelonch
Fonda Gaig
Commerc 24
cerveseria Catalanya

Gelonch IS AMAZING! so under rated and such great value! At 44 euros for the tasting menu it was the absolute stand out. We paid 590 for a dining accom package at Con Fabes and I have to say that Gelonch blew everything away.

the other stand out was Fonda Gaig. My fav traditional meal by far.

Commerc 24 Meh. It was good but I was sad that I did not go back to Fonda Gaig

Cerveseria Catalanya was the best tapas pinxos meal as well.

have fun. I am jealous

Taller de Tapas in Barcelona

Went there a couple of nights ago and found it totally average. Food for the masses. Masses of tourists. I would HIGHLY recommend Cerveseria Catalanya for an amazing Tapas feast for cheap cheap cheap. Also stand out was Fonda Gaig for a more sit down traditional expeerience

Barcelona 8 days in October! Suggestions anyone

We are definitely foodies. We are up for absolutely anything but we want to spread our experience between traditional Catalan/spanish cuisine and Modern molecular gastronomy. Because each dinner is special for us we are eager to gather as much info as possible. Also any suggestions on accommodation for 4 is helpful.

Rustic Canyon

Love this place! The burgers are great. The seasonal menu changes so it never gets old. we went on the weekend and had PE mussels which were great and then some crispy white polenta with wild mushrooms and a fried egg on top. Shared a roasted branzino and salad. The wine list is great and the service is always wonderrful.

A Real butcher?

even Harvey guss said they could not get the loin with the belly still attached. I did get some great pork cheek there though and some wonderful steaks. I am sold on that place.

Pizzeria Mozza - your thoughts

I just came back from NYC and was VERY dissappointed with Otto which I loved a couple of years ago. My lardo was undercooked and cold. Have had great stuff at Mozza though recently

So I have one dinner to impress friends from Australia. I love Giorgio Baldi but have been there so often. Where else would you go? I was thinking Cappo or Via Vineto. Any thoughts:
