After our 10 A.M. entry to SF, we'll stop somewhere for a menu del dia before heading to Parc Guell for the rest of the afternoon. Rather than heading back to another area, we'd like to stay in the area of the Gaudi sights we're visiting. Is there a reason Bodega Manolo never appears on any list of recommendations? Appears very neighborhood-ish; very local, which is the venue we're seeking. Anyone have personal experience with it? Will our rudimentary use of Spanish be a problem there? (dictionary, food terms listed on this site, pantomimes, and un poquito espanol.) Our trips are always more exciting with the help of our TA friends. Any recommendations are much appreciated. (I also read an article about Libentia (sp?), but the scarcity of reviews and the modern atmosphere make it less appealing than a local place frequented by the neighborhood folks.
