Excited to eat in Barcelona but need some advice!

I just realized that I never wrote back to this last summer so I am long overdue! You are right that Albert is so nice- I had read on some other posts that sometimes you can show up to Tickets right as they were opening and see if someone has canceled at the last minute. So on the first night of our trip when it was just myself and my husband, we thought we would try. We arrived a few minutes before opening time and there were lots of employees milling about and I just happened to stop the first person I saw to inquire about any openings and I was so lucky that Albert is who I happened to stop and he was nice enough to set up a table for us at the bar near the entrance even though they were fully booked! We were so happy and proceeded to have one of the best meals we have ever experienced. The oysters were amazing!

Best places to eat near York Beach, Maine

Hi! Our family of six (myself, my husband, our two year old, two month old and my parents) are spending the first weekend of September in York Beach, Maine and I was wondering what restaurant recommendations you guys might have for us. We are all seafood lovers and are particularly interested in great lobster and/or lobster rolls. Many thanks in advance!

Excited to eat in Barcelona but need some advice!

Hi! I will be in Barcelona for five nights during the first week of July (Tuesday through Sunday). The first two nights will be just myself and my husband and then the remaining three will be a large group of about 12-15 friends. For the first night, I think we are going to try to go to Tickets a little before they open and hope for some cancellations/no shows. The second night, I am thinking of Paco Meralgo. I'm leaning towards Kaiku which is near our hotel for the third night which will be the first night for most of the group. And a food tour with Aborigens on either Friday or Saturday night. That leaves one night to fill. What does anyone think about Llamber or Pla for a big group? Or any other thoughts for a fun and good meal for a group? Or any modifications to this that you think I should make? Many thanks in advance!!
