With a contemporary feel and open kitchens, this multifaceted restaurant inside the Mercat de Santa Caterina offers all sorts of food. Peck at the sushi bar, tuck into classic rice dishes or chargrilled meat, or go vegetarian. It does some things better than others (skip the hummus and tarte tatin). Reservations aren’t taken, so you may have to queue.

A drawback is the speed with which barely finished plates are whisked away from you, but the range of dishes and bustling atmosphere are fun.
