I’m a big fan of Gwyneth Paltrow and love her website goop. Recently goop added a section to their website – goop city guides! I was so excited that Barcelona was one of their first guides. Suquet de l’Almirall is one of the recommendations.
goop describes the restaurant:
The philosophy behind Suquet de l’Almirall, helmed by Quim Marqués, a fourth generation chef, is to feature seafood caught and sold in Barcelona’s harbors—most of their ingredients are purchased at the local fish market, which is just steps from the seaside restaurant. The menu is filled with classically Catalan (but often adventurous) seafood dishes like fried anchovies and an insanely good paella.
