We'll be in Barcelona and San Sebastian for our 5-year anniversary. We're visiting from NYC and would love to try the best both cities have to offer, at all levels. Here is the current tentative itinerary, but would love to get some thoughts. I think we currently may be too overloaded on long meals and fine-dining, so would appreciate feedback on which ones to drop, and also some suggestions of less long meals to replace them.
We arrive on a Monday morning in Barcelona. Most of the top places are only open Tuesday through Saturday, so I'd love to get some recommendations for more casual places that are still excellent that are open on Monday.
Tuesday: Lunch at Moments, Dinner at Tickets or 41 degrees. We may skip lunch to do more sightseeing and just have a big dinner, in which case I would lean toward 41 degrees for the full experience but curious what others think.
Wednesday: Lunch at El Celler De Can Roca. We'll probably be stuffed but would like to find a good tapas place for dinner.
Thursday: Fly to Bilbao, drive to San Sebastian. Currently have lunch booked at Akelerre. Pintxos for dinner.
Friday: Lunch booked at Mugaritz and dinner at Arzak. Again, this may be too much food - leaning toward perhaps dropping dinner at Arzak
Saturday: Lunch at Asador Extebarri. Pintxos for dinner.
Sunday: Fly back to NYC.
Thanks for the help!
