If there’s one place you should prioritize while visiting Barcelona, it’s Besta. This newish restaurant on the traditionally less fashionable “left” side of the Eixample district mixes Galician and Catalonian influences on their constantly-changing menu. Packed with unconventional combinations using seasonal produce and fresh seafood—think white Mediterranean shrimp tartare with aged Galician beef carpaccio, and calamari with swiss chard and black pudding jus—everything here is both surprising and will make you immediately want to order it again. Round it all out with a gin and tonic (or two) made with their very own gin, which is distilled with algae and oysters for a cool, cucumbery (and only very slightly salty) finish.
