One Week in and Around San Sebastian: Narrowing Down the Choices

I can't really compare Martin Berasategui with any of the others, as I haven't been to them (although I'll be going to Arzak on November 3rd), but I went last october to MB and had a truly outstanding meal there, including a couple of the best dishes I've ever eaten, washed down with my favourite white wine (Belondrade Y Lurton), so I can recommend it on its own merits.

Martin Berasategui - table booked, but does anyone have wine recommendations?

Ah, that sounds good. Will take my meal towards the 'ruinously expensive' end of the scale, but I think I'll push the boat out for the paired wines. Thanks.

I expect so, but just wondered if anyone had sampled a particularly good bottle they could recommend. Not always in love with the upselling some sommeliers indulge in

I've booked a table for myself at Martin Berasategui in early October. My heart was set on Akelarre, but I've timed it all wrong. So, I'll probably go for the tasting menu here - is it paired with wines, or do you just have to choose a bottle? If the latter, does anyone have a good recommendation? I always end up drinking Belondrade y Lurton in Spain, and I could do with broadening my horizons!

BCN review - Alkimia, Berri Taktika, Sagardi, Taller de Tapas, Bar Lobo, etc.

Cheers for the write up. Big fan of Sagardi, personally. Nothing amazing food-wise, but a great location just up from Vinya Del Senyor, a good people watching spot as PBSF noted, and a nice buzz about the place.
