Trying to pack - need suggestions on attire

thomasby | Apr 30, 2009 06:34 AM

Good morning-

Long time reader/First time poster here. My wife and I are taking a delayed honeymoon (wedding was back in August) to Barcelona, Moraira, Seville, and Madrid. We love to cook and eat, and we're practically salivating with anticipation. We've read quite a bit about where to go and what to eat, but I am struggling with the packing. We have decided to go for it at Cinq Sentis for the tasting menu. It's something we probably wouldn't do at home in Chicago, but what the heck.

I'm wondering, how swanky do we need to be in the dressing department? I would never wear less than a suit to go to Alinea here in Chicago- is Cinq Sentis similar? Or can I wear jeans with a cool shirt and a blazer? I don't want to be "those stupid Americans" they seat in the corner because we show up with flip-flops and "I (heart) New York" t-shirts!

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
