Even proud Catalonia isn't immune to the gastronomic pull of the Basque country. Barcelona now has several outposts of Sagardi, a rustic-modern restaurant modeled after a traditional Basque cider hall. The tortillas de bacalao (cod omelets) and baby squid in ink sauce are served in the same family style you'd find in the hinterlands of San Sebastián, and diners pour themselves unlimited alcoholic cider from the gargantuan kupelas (casks) that line the walls. (The tart, Champagne-like fizz packs a punch, so pace yourself.) Truth be told, Sagardi's emphasis on the ingredients' provenance and presentation, not to mention its trendy El Born location, makes it more of a haute gastropub than an authentic sagardotegia. But the hordes crowding its adjoining pintxos (tapas) bar and spilling out onto the street don't seem to mind.

Open daily 1 to 4 pm and 8:30 pm to midnight.
