Food in Barcelona

We are visiting Barcelona, Spain for a week, and are having trouble finding decent restaurants that aren't geared towards tourists in the Eixample area. I figure that y'all might know where we can eat.

We are looking for restaurants primarily in the Eixamlple area of the city. We are staying very close to the intersection of Gracia and Diagonal avenues and would prefer not to walk more than 3/4 of a mile or so for dinner (although will walk further if it's worth it).
There are a lot of tapas places here, but they seem to cater primarily to tourists. They're expensive and not terribly amazing. We would prefer inexpensive (like 17 to 20 euros for a meal for two, for about 3 plates of tapas and maybe some wine) and authentic food. We are mostly looking for good dinner places. Being able to sit outside is nice, but not absolutely necessary.
We've looked online and in guidebooks but all the places we tried today that we found online no longer existed, so I thought I'd turn to the hive mind for help. Thank you!
If there is anything else we just can't miss while we are here, let me know. My favorite thing in Paris (the only other big European city I've visited) was the catacombs, so anything like that is up my alley.
