La Barra de Carles AbellanThe latest offering from Michelin-starred chef and elBulli alum Carles Abellan (Bravo, Suculent) celebrates all things seafood, so it’s fitting that its location is in the seaside neighborhood of Barceloneta. The marine-themed setting is ideal for diving into gourmet tapas, which include grilled locally sourced prawns, grilled Galician razor clams, and stir-fried sea cucumber. A meal here isn’t exactly wallet-friendly—small plates average $20 each, and you’ll want several—but the fresh ingredients and beautiful execution make it worth the splurge.
