Nuria restaurant was likely one of the first things many Catalans saw when they first visited Barcelona, since it's been standing at the corner of La Rambla and C/Pelai for nearly a century. Now the owners, grandchildren of the founders, have renovated the space inside and out to once again be a meeting place for not just tourists but Catalans as well. The renovation plans were to take Nuria back in time 90 years or so, with a fresh and fair tapas menu – where you can get something to eat and a good glass of wine for about five euros – and special attention paid to a good sandwich (try the calamari with 'aioli'). While you're there, take a moment to contemplate the artwork that genius illustrators such as Nazario have donated to the history of the place.
