Why locals love it
Senyor Parellada might not look like much, but wait till you see what they put on your plate! This Born institution offers all the classics of Catalan and Spanish cuisine, but with an attention to detail that keeps'em coming back.
Why you should visit it
This is possibly one of the best downtown eateries, and that alone counts for a lot, in a district beset with over-priced tourist traps. It's not cheap, but you'll know where that extra money went - getting the best produce possible to really pamper your tastebuds.
Reservations on weekends are always advisable, though it's a fairly big place, and you will most likely not have to wait long.
