Hisop is a small, starkly modern and minimalist dining room located in a quiet alley off Barcelona's busy Avinguda Diagonal. Open since 2001, in 2010 it received its first Michelin star and would be our first Michelin experience. While I know stars aren't required for a great dining experience, I can't say I wasn't curious to see what Michelin star dining was like. Although not pretentious or stuffy, it was the most formal of all our dining experiences in Barcelona and was a nice change of pace from the previous two nights of casual tapas.

It's no wonder then that as we were planning our trip to Barcelona food was going to be high on the agenda. With just four nights I spent months doing research, reading reviews and articles, and pouring over websites. There were so many options, and even more opinions. It was overwhelming. But in the end, we narrowed it down to four we hoped would both satisfy and delight: La Pepita, Tickets, Hisop, and 41 Degrees.
