Hello / Kaixo, Chowhounders! You all were super helpful when I went to Piedmont a couple of years ago and now I finally get to visit Spain, starting with Basque country.

Here's a rough sketch of my plans for September:

Tuesday: arrive in Bilbao - dinner at Mina (hopefully)

Wednesday: picking up car, visiting caves in Cantabria, and perhaps a late lunch at El Nuevo Molino in Arce before heading back east to the hotel at el Castillo de Arteaga.

Thursday: visiting Gernika in the morning, lunch at Azurmendi.
No dinner plans yet for either Wednesday or Thursday -- very open to suggestions. We couldn't get a table at Exteberri. We like steak, but we like a lot of other things too :)

Friday and Saturday in San Sebastian. Friday dinner at Urola (thank you for the strong recommendation!) We couldn't get into Arzak; would you recommend another place or should we just use Saturday night for pintxos hopping?

Sunday we'll be heading to Rio Tiron/La Rioja, and then flying out of BCN but haven't planned much there yet beyond hotels.

Thanks everyone!
