San Sebastian is a very special place. It's a resort town with so much to do and offer. I took a day trip here from Barcelona and instantly regret it when I got back to Barcelona that night.
Restaurante Gandarias is the pinotxo bar that trumps them all in San Sebastián. It's the one where Anthony Bourdain visited with Elena Arzak on his show.
Mugaritz is one of the few restaurants in Basque Country with 2 or more Michelin stars. It's run by Andoni Luis Aduriz who came out of Arzak's kitchen. Arzak was my first choice, but it was closed during m
Quimet Y Quimet is the tapas bar everyone talks about when they come back from Barcelona. It's the one everyone says, "You have to eat at Quimet & Quimet. It's so good!"
Barcelona lands in my top 3 destinations for culinary gluttony as I will never confess this sin and gladly live in sin for the rest of my life. The other 2 destinations are Japan and Lima.
Tickets Bar is definitely one of the hardest reservations to get in Barcelona. If not, the hardest. It's sister restaurant, Bodega 1900, across the street was a lot easier to get reservations.
The Adria brothers famous for elBulli and Tickets Bar. They have become restaurateurs with multiple restaurants in Barcelona. Bodega 1900 is their latest.
