Hi all, We're planning another (kinda) last minute trip and could use some help. What do you think of this itinerary? It's mostly based on friends' recommendations and searching this forum. There are a bunch of gaps (mostly lunches) that we could use some help with too.
I'm really on the fence about Enoteca Pinchiorri. Is it worth it? Both in terms of cost and in terms of giving up a night that we could be doing another meal. I'm thinking maybe a place to try bistecca al sangue instead (Sostanza?).
Some potential alternatives for Florence are:
Some potential additions/alternatives for Rome are:
Thanks for any input!
Hi everyone, We're planning a long weekend in early November and I'm hoping you all can give me some input on the reservations we've been able to pull so far.
Friday -- either Saison (chef's counter) or Benu
I'm leaning towards Saison and SPQR on the days we have two options. Thoughts?
Also, before you say anything -- I know all of these spots are generally similar level/price/etc., and there are a ton of other options, so we plan on roaming for lunch and late night fourth meals to cover a broader range of what the city has to offer, but we're looking for these types of restaurants for dinners.
BTW, it was surprisingly easy to get reservations at all of these places with just two weeks notice...
Thanks in advance!
Thanks. Etapes actually came up in some of my other searching, so we'll have to check it out.
One more question -- the hotel says that Lasarte and ABAC have a "formal" dress code, while Hofmann and Comerc 24 are "casual." For anyone that's been to ABAC or Lasarte, are jackets required for men? I'd rather not have to bring one. Thanks,
Yup, you're right of course. Thanks.
Harters -- Thanks for the info. We're staying at the Valldemossa Hotel, which I guess would be considered the north east part of the island. But we're renting a car and are willing to travel. I'd love to hear more about low key and local options. By this point in the trip, we're probably going to be all Michilen-starred out. Thanks for the link. Do you have any favorites?
Neoyorquino -- Thanks for the input, variety was what I was going for with those four. And you actually read my mind -- with the amount of fancy restaurants we have on the schedule, and just arriving that morning, I think the plan is to find a more low key option for our first night instead of Botafumerio. We're looking for tapas, and have read some on the forum about Canete. We'll also check out Mam i Teca.
Hi everyone, My wife and I are planning a 7-night trip to Barcelona and Majorca on (kind of) short notice, and have these dinner reservations:
I'd love to know what do you think.
The concierge recommended Botafumerio, but reviews seem to be a mix of tourists saying "best seafood ever" and foodies saying "worse tourist trap ever"...
So we're looking for one more dinner in Barcelona (maybe tapas?) and two in Majorca. What are we missing?
By the way, the concierge at Hotel 1898 has been great -- highly recommended so far.
