Hello All,

My husband and I are taking a belated honeymoon trip to Spain in June. Neither of us has been to Spain and want to balance experiencing the country and major attractions with one "must eat" experience for each place we go. Not necessarily a fine dining experience--could be street food or a pintxos or a Michelin rated restaurant. We want to eat well, but don't necessarily want to plan all of our meals in advance and take advantage of stumbling on great finds (but also do not want to eat tourist crap food).

Our itinerary is:
Barcelona (3 days)
Drive to San Sebastian with a stop in Olite (other stops?)
San Sebatian (2 days)
Bilbao (1 day)
La Rioja (wine tastings 2 days)
Drive to Madrid (1 day)
Madrid (3 days)

Any thoughts on great eating experiences or places would be much appreciated. (And places to avoid and that could be okay in a pinch, near major museums/tourist locations).

Thank you!!!
