Picnic’s Thanksgiving Supper

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

.

Un mundo globalizado tiene algunas ventajas, y claramente la gastronomía es uno de los grandes beneficiados de la fragilidad actual de las fronteras. Podemos comer en un restaurante coreano, disfrutar de un buen entrecot argentino y hasta degustar insectos se ha convertido en algo más o menos común. Pero, ¿por qué no importar también las fiestas y sus menús tradicionales? Es la idea del Picnic Restaurant, que ha decidido traer a Barcelona la clásica cena de acción de gracias americana que tanto hemos visto en películas y teleseries. Crema de calabazas, puré de patata y, por supuesto, el clásico pavo braseado con sirope de arce no faltarán, aunque habrá muchos más platos, y todos tradicionales. ¿Te animas a cenar al otro lado del océano sin salir de tu ciudad?

Arctic Monkeys

Monday, November 4th, 2013


.

Una de las bandas más representativas del indie británico en lo que llevamos de siglo, Arctic Monkeys, vuelve el sábado 16 de noviembre a Barcelona. Y lo hace como cualquier cosa menos como un grupito de chavales. Porque la banda, que cuenta ya con cinco discos a sus espaldas, ha dejado atrás aquella imagen adolescente para convertirse en un conjunto respetado sin discusión, digno de tocar en el Palau Olímpic de Badalona, una sala reservada sólo a grandes artistas de talla mundial. El cuarteto de Sheffield llega con su último trabajo, “AM”, todavía calentito, pues lo lanzaron hace apenas dos meses. Una ocasión única de ver cómo defienden en directo este álbum que, por el momento, se ha ganado el favor de la crítica, algo que nunca es fácil… y menos si hablamos del quinto disco.

Beefeater In-Edit 2011

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

The Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona recommend the Barcelona International Music Documentary Film Festival. (The Festival will run from October 27th to November 6th, 2011.)

-

This year is the ninth edition of Beefeater In-Edit to be held in Barcelona and it’s worth casting our eyes back and confirming the place that’s been made for music documentaries in this country. And this isn’t just because over the years, beyond the festival’s international development (this year marks the 24th inauguration of an In-Edit festival somewhere around the world), the genre has confirmed its growth, standardizing its existence on TV in many countries, generating new cinematic events in the world and gaining ground in the most traditional sector: the film festivals.

The Top 6 Paella restaurants in Barcelona!

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

The Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona is alwais giving the best tips to enjoy Barcelona! This time we are going to let you know where you’ll find the best Paella restaurantes in the city!

Barcelona is not only a city famous for Modernism and sunny beaches. As well as being a cult centre for worshippers of Gaudi, the Catalan capital offers the utmost in the region’s culture of gastronomy. Paella may not be a specialty for Cataluña in the same way as Fuet for example, however the city’s restaurants have continuously reinvented their recipes and offer succulent Paellas waiting to be discovered! But with so many tourist traps as well as the more ‘typical’ restaurants where can you find a really good Paella in Barcelona?

1. Les 7 Portes

An ideal location in the district of Barceloneta, this restaurant offers a wide variety of rice dishes so it is quite natural to find a number of different types of Paella on the menu, each as appetising as the next. Those looking for a mixed paella with sea food or a traditional Valencian-style paella served with black rice will be delighted by the offer and completely enraptured by the talents of the chef; all for only 12€! Don’t wait any longer; come and discover this little restaurant that dates back to 1836 and has served a whole host of famous characters including Orson Welles, Federico Garcia Lorca and even Picasso.

2. Elche


Many consider this restaurant the true shrine for Paella in Barcelona. Don’t let the dark uniforms of the waiters put you off, first impressions may be formidable but the staff are really pleasant. And the cuisine is just as impressive as the service! The Paellas are really spectacular, particularly the Paella Catalan. If you have never had the chance to try it, it’s now or never. The difference lies in the type of rice or fine pasta that is used instead of plain white rice. It is a delicious specialty for any paella amateur who will leave the restaurant with a positive experience and for a more than reasonable price.

3. Escriba – El Xiringuito

Close your eyes for a second and imagine the scene: you and your loved one alongside the beach; dining face to face with a view overlooking the sea, and just a stroll away from the two symbolic towers of Barcelona lighting up the night sky. It’s a beautiful night and you are both enjoying a delicious Paella. Not a bad dream, eh? Well you can come back down to earth because the place really exists and can be found on the beach front at playa de Bogatell. The ‘Escriba’, or the “Chiringuito de Bogatell”, this unique ‘beach bar’ not only offers one of the best Paellas in Barcelona but a whole selection of typical Catalan dishes prepared with fresh fish. Well-known and popular amongst the locals it is often necessary to book a table, particularly in summer if you want a table outside.

4. Roig Robí


The chefs of Roig Robí have been satisfying the palates of Barcelona’s inhabitants for 25 years. This restaurant has gradually become one of the city’s most noteworthy locations especially famous for its fresh sea food produce that is delivered to the restaurant twice a day. A special talent for innovation and creativity has enabled the Roig Robí chefs to give traditional Catalan cuisine a completely new image. Their true speciality is the absolutely exquisite Prawn Paella that is served in a colourful and really pleasant atmosphere!

5. El Pollo Rico


El Pollo Rico is not a 4 star restaurant, and as the name suggests is a popular location, and the frequent haunt of students. However it would be a challenge to find a Paella in Barcelona that matches the price-quality balance that is offered at El Pollo Rico. Just 3.50€ per dish! It is a Paradise for young people (and the not so young as well!)

6. Can Majó


We have kept the best for last. This quite exceptional restaurant really cannot be rivalled. Can Majó is located on the sea front promenade at Barceloneta. Dating back 40 years, this 100% Mediterranean restaurant has made a name for itself in Barcelona with recipes that have been passed down from father to son and produce carefully chosen and personally selected by the chef himself. You will quite likely taste the best Paella in Barcelona. Although it is not the most economical of locations, as the saying goes: when it comes to love you don’t count the cost!

Set your sights on Barcelona’s top 10

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona highly recommend this post from Lonley Planet that shows a top 10 of places to visit in Barcelona

Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain’s most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer.
Barcelona has been breaking ground in art, architecture and style since the late 19th century. From the marvels of Modernisme to the modern wonders of today, the racing heart of Barcelona has barely skipped a beat. The city’s avant-garde chefs whip up a storm that has even the French reaching for superlatives. The city itself could keep you occupied for weeks but just outside are sandy beaches, Sitges and the Montserrat mountain range. Here are a handful of things you should raise to the top of your to-do list.
1. Scaling the dizzy heights of La Sagrada Família

It is Spain’s most visited sight – and it isn’t even finished! For many, that is part of the attraction. If you have been to Barcelona before, you have probably already visited Antoni Gaudí’s La Sagrada Família church. But that was last time, wasn’t it? A work in progress, it is never quite the same. Lifts and stairs allow you to ascend a tower of each facade and look down over the splendid work below and the city around it, and perhaps feel a breath of the heavenly inspiration that touched Gaudí.

2. La Rambla
By day and night, multitudes stream along this tree-lined pedestrian boulevard (flanked by two clogged traffic lanes), a stage for street performers (from flamenco dancers to fire-eaters and more human statues than you could knock over in one go), pickpockets, three-cups-and-a-ball tricksters and more. Rip-off pavement cafes, Australian pubs and newsstands bursting with porn add to the local colour. As day turns to night, streetwalkers of all persuasions come out to play at the lower end of the boulevard, and many out-of-towners become more vocal as they revel into the wee hours.

3. Admiring Catalonia’s artistic heritage in the Museu Nacional d’art de Catalunya (MNAC)
The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya is a one-stop immersion course on the world of (mostly) Catalan art, from medieval church frescoes to chairs designed by Gaudí. The highlight is the Romanesque art collection. In the 1920s, art historians combed hundreds of churches dotting the northern Catalan countryside. Inside they uncovered unprecedented treasures: remains of bright Romanesque frescoes, some dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries. To save them from further decay, many were removed to Barcelona, and today they can be admired in the re-created interiors of those churches.

4. Wandering the fragrant gardens of Montjuïc

Barcelona is one of the noisier cities in Europe, and there’s no better antidote to the grinding decibel assault of traffic, road works, sirens and blaring music than a lazy day of strolling amid the beauty and serenity of soothing gardens, all the while gazing back on the urban madness below. A trip to Montjuïc is already a must for its many fine museums, but it’s also worth coming here just for a wander to see the fantastic views over the wide blue sea from one of its several botanical gardens, where there is no better spot in Barcelona for a snooze under a tree.

5. Marvelling at the many zany Modernista creations In L’Eixample

If there is a part of town where you should always keep an eye skyward, l’Eixample is it. As you wander the grid of streets, your eyes fall upon the splendid and whimsical facades of the countless buildings that Modernista architects raised in a few short decades around the turn of the 20th century. The closer you look at many of them, the more intriguing detail they reveal.

6. Peering at Picasso’s precocious genius

Five hefty, stone, Gothic-baroque mansions in a row on medieval Carrer de Montcada are today occupied by Barcelona’s Museu Picasso (noticeable by their absence), this is a rare voyage of discovery. If any proof was needed that Picasso had all the technical ability to turn out whatever he wanted, from giant canvases to whimsical self-portraits, you have it in abundance here.

7. Meditating on times past in the Església De Santa Maria Del Mar

The grand Gothic church of Our Lady of the Sea was blessed in 1384. As you admire this splendid feat of medieval construction, imagine the religious devotion of the city’s porters, who spent a day each week carrying on their backs the stone required to build the church, trudging all the way from the royal quarries in Montjuïc. Their very blood is etched into the church’s walls, and their memory lives on in reliefs of them on the main doors and stone carvings elsewhere in the church.

8. Falling under a spell in Park Güell

What a fine flop! What started in 1900 as the dream of a Barcelonin magnate, Eusebi Güell, for an English-style “garden city” for the hoity-toity ended up as an enchanting public space. Alice in Wonderland would feel at home, as you’re greeted by two gingerbread houses of soft brown stone, topped by curvaceous, creamy-looking roofs decorated in trencadís (broken-up ceramics). The great pillared hall (Sala Hipóstila) would have housed the garden city’s market. Its roof is a grand viewing platform across the city, lined by the Banc de Trencadís, a delightful bench that snakes around its perimeter and is clad with candy-coloured ceramics.

9. Sitting on the edge of your seat at a Barça match
For the sports-minded, little can match the glory and spectacle of a football match at FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium, one of the biggest and best in the world. The athletic genius of players in one of Europe’s greatest clubs (founded in 1899) will have you sitting on the edge of your seat – along with 100,000 other spectators – when the stadium fills for big clashes, like the derby with arch-rivals Real Madrid.

10. Musing on epic seafaring at the Museu Marítim


Climb aboard the life-sized replica of Don Juan of Austria’s elaborately adorned 16th-century galley, and imagine life aboard this warship. Hundreds of men chained to the giant oars that drove this vessel at up to nine knots. The cracking of whips; the agony of this mix of slaves, prisoners and desperate volunteers. The sheer stench. These wretches ate, slept and went to the toilet where they sat. You could smell a medieval galley from miles away. Don Juan’s galley was launched here, at the Reials Drassanes (Royal Shipyards). The site has been a museum since the 1940s and is one of the most fascinating in the city.
