Fodor's Expert Review Blue Spot

$$ La Ciutadella and Barceloneta Mediterranean Fodor's Choice
An architect-designed dining room with jaw-dropping views (up and down the coast, in this case) is all too often a predictor of humdrum cooking, at least in Barcelona. Blue Spot—on the eighth floor of a building at the southernmost tip of Barceloneta's beach—breaks this mold with some assured and original Mediterranean-inspired dishes. You might find roast scallops with celery purée or a soft-shelled crab "burger" alongside a selection of meat and fish cooked on the wood-fired grill in the open kitchen. Stay for a nightcap later on when Blue Spot becomes Blue Monkey, a cocktail bar for the city's gilded youth.
