Barcelona’s avenue-esque Carrer d’Enric Granados is named after the illustrious composer born in nearby Lleida in 1867. It’s a semi-pedestrian street, charming from its top (at Diagonal) to its tail (at Universitat), and it’s packed with design stores, art galleries and terrace cafés. Here are some highly recommended food venues.
