Phil Rosenthal, host of "I'll Have What Phil's Having," details the places you MUST visit in Barcelona
  1. El Quim de la Boqueria
    305b612a fa3c 4c17 9231 6c6e483d4e71
    El Quim has been at Barcelona's Boqueria market for 26 years. What started as a nine-foot counter with five stools has grown into a busy corner restaurant in the middle of the market.
  2. La Taberna del Suculent
    B9c4658f ad4f 4d25 8e27 cc93c96031b3
    Located in what Phil calls the “Brooklyn of Barcelona,” Suculent is the first stop on Phil’s quest to find the best tapas in the city.
  3. Bar Cañete
    74a22f68 b8b8 486b 9b0f 1e2b6b09ee7b
    One of the best tapas bars in Barcelona.
  4. Dos Cielos
    44139b05 4575 4ef5 a54f 076a16bf75b9
    Twin brothers Sergio and Javier Torres own and run Dos Cielos. Says Phil: "This place is very high end, very creative, very fancy, and quite frankly I don’t always know what the hell I’m eating.”
  5. Bodega 1900
    B960856a 5a08 4719 839d 40bea1ae345e
    In the mid 1980s, two brothers named Ferran and Albert Adria took a small restaurant on the Costa Brava about two hours north of Barcelona and transformed it into what was widely considered to be the best restaurant in the world. El Bulli. Some called it the birthplace of molecular gastronomy--which is a fancy term for an artistic, expressive, avant garde way of cooking. Some of the same dishes live on in the brothers’ new casual places in Barcelona, Tickets and Bodega 1900, a vermouth bar.
  6. Tickets
    54f06289 8b2d 4058 8cf7 ddfe0026b3ad
    Chef Albert Adria’s casual tapas restaurant is the hottest restaurant in Barcelona, and the winner of Phil’s quest to find the best tapas in the city.
  7. Granja Viader
    792ee1ae 7adb 474e a39b 4b6abf8d6c6d
    Chef Albert Adria’s favorite breakfast place in town, this 125 year old spot has the best hot chocolate in Barcelona.
  8. Pakta
    0e1aa519 65f8 4cf9 8132 6b1af6d9a574
    Chef Albert Adria’s Paruvian Japanese restaurant. The pork belly with kimchi makes Phil stop in his tracks.
