Gracia's self-proclaimed casual seafood restaurant at Torrent de les Flors, 71, has a sibling living very nearby. And Lluritu 2 has a capacity for 100 diners, thanks to its two storeys: the ground floor features high tables and stools, and the upper level is where you'll find chairs and tables. The menu is the same as in the original restaurant, though it's a bit expanded. According to one of the partners, Pau Roca, Lluritu 2 is a mid-range restaurant that serves up barbecued and grilled seafood using high-quality products and minimal elaboration. You will find their house classics, such as the 'pop sec' – octopus dried and hydrated with a spectacular oil – and seafood paella. Plus there are specialities of their own creation, such as a potato omelette with oil from juicy prawn heads, or waste-not cooking that uses as much of the fish as possible, such as sea bass cheeks, tuna 'parpatana' (between the fin and belly, complete tenderness) or a cuttlefish tartare. Lluritu 2 incorporates elements of bar food from outside Catalonia (Madrid bar food, Cádiz tapas), which is also always appreciated. Whatever you do, please book in advance.
