Martin Berasategui is one of Tom’s favorite restaurants. It’s a restaurant that is continuously on the cutting edge of new gastronomical techniques, experiments with flavors and textures, but also offers age old favorites from years past that have stood the test of time.
The drive from San Sebastian towards Bilbao rivals the Big Sur Highway with its bridges and expansive views of the ocean on one side, and green rolling mountain hills on the other. The directions from the website were simple with landmarks as turning guides since signage was a little scarce along the way. Tom […]
On Calle 31 de Agosto in San Sebastian, it seems every other doorway leads to a pintxo bar. Music and laughter fill the street, and the smell of fried seafood permeates the air. In a town of over 200 pintxo bars, the choices are endless.
San Sebastian is a fairy tale city that is alive with heart and soul.
Madrid is a city of love…A love of art, a love of life, a love of food. Madrileños, as the locals are known, celebrate the beauty of life and take the time to enjoy the moment. Work is an afterthought, a disruption in the celebration of what life has to offer. The narrow streets, inviting […]

Two Japanese girls at the table next to us were focused on taking pictures of each other and the food. They barely […]
Geranium was very different than what we expected and what we have experienced in the past. Emphasis was on herbs and vegetables and showcased Denmark’s short growing season and food staples in a way that had us rethinking our opinions on Nordic fare.
Copenhagen’s iconic figure, The Little Mermaid is a must to see while visiting this colorful Nordic town. The true story of The Little Mermaid written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1837 is actually very depressing. I prefer the Disney-fied edition with the happily ever after ending. Fairy tales in the Victorian age were supposed to […]
Our first night in Copenhagen we headed to the Entertainment District to dine at Restaurant Radio. I don’t know how Tom finds these places, but his dining radar is always spot on. Radio is a small industrial looking restaurant right across the street from the Music Conservatory Concert Hall and near the big Forum for colossal […]
