The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Eat Your Way Through Barcelona


The wine selection at La Carte des Vins.  

3. What to Do

After touring the restaurant scene, visit the city's finer food emporiums. Besides a huge collection of local vendors (plying piles of produce and cases filled with wild game), the Mercat de Santa Caterina has a shocking, stylish design. Jamonísimo stocks jamon de bellota (acorn-fed ham) and other hams you've never considered. They'll pack it all properly for your plane ride home. La Carte des Vins has a large selection of Spanish wines and a British expert, Gareth York, to guide you through a tasting.
