I'm lying in bed and my stomach is beginning a protest. It's not too bad yet, and as I'm lying there I hope that it will pass, but I can't stop thinking about how this may just be the beginning of something bad.
Disfrutar received its first Michelin star in 2015, a year after opening, and in 2016 was named Best New Restaurant in Europe. I thought it would be our best meal in Barcelona, but for overall best experience it was outdone by our meal at Spoonik.
We gathered in the modern, open kitchen that looked out over Las Ramblas with our chef, Stefano Marcellini, who hails from Italy but considers Barcelona his home. He quickly went through the menu we would be preparing and all the steps for each dish so we would get an overview. It was a little overwhelming and I didn't know how we would remember everything, but there was no need to worry.
Our first day trip began with a visit to Montserrat mountain, located fifty minutes west of Barcelona.
