Gut is a very attractive restaurant, with its pristine white furnishings and venerable wooden chairs. It’s a small, elongated space, but thanks to the lighting they have made the most of it. They serve breakfast, lunch (a special menu at a very good price), dinner and drinks. Their modest menu offers a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, with dishes such as prawn and mango curry and the tasty mushroom and foie brick. It’s always full, and with today’s economic problems, that says a lot about the place.
Gràcia, you are a true beauty. Barcelona’s all-in-one community neighbourhood is a gorgeous homage to independence, creativity, good taste and excitement. Gràcia is where Barcelona’s trends begin, be it vegan stores or weeklong street parties that will likely redefine how you view such things. Gràcia is a neighbourhood that many visitors subsequently move back to in search of the next big thing or just a good book from one of the many independent bookstores in and around the place.
A low-rise barrio found beyond the Eixample, Gràcia is an independent town that Barcelona swallowed as it spread, but a fierce independent streak still runs through the heart of the neighbourhood today.
