Item description for Barcelona: Restaurants & More by Angelika Taschen...
When the sun goes down, Spain's culinary culture comes alive; the Catalans like to enjoy their meals late into the night, to the surprise of many foreigners who are not accustomed to eating dinner as late as 11 p.m. or even midnight. But they quickly become accustomed to this very relaxed way of life, having learned to enjoy a siesta in the afternoon when all the shops are closed. A favorite way to usher in the evening hours is to visit a classic tapas bar such as TapaC24 or Cerveceria El Vaso de Oro, where fresh, simple, and delicious nibbles can be had while sipping a cold cerveza. When your appetite is in full swing and the hour grows late, choose from our restaurant recommendations such as 7 Portes, the oldest eatery in the city, or the very glamorous Noti. If after-dinner drinks are in order, be sure to visit Bar Gimlet for cocktails and jazz. And forget about that diet: you must try the scrumptiously sweet suizos and churros at Granja La Pallaresa!This title features: an exclusive hand-illustrated cover; an exclusive hand-illustrated map for each area; information such as history, design, opening hours, and signature dishes; hand-illustrated postcard; and, softcover with a sturdy PVC jacket. More bang for your buck! "...a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand." - "The New York Times Book Review".
