What 2 eat – North of Spain – Martin Berasategui

Many moons ago (Oct 2012), my friend and I went to spain…..

Lessons Learned

  • Many similarities to La Vie in style and presentation
  • A few dishes had more show in texture and design.. than taste
  • Nice wine list.. extensive and affordable.
  • Book tables for 1330, We were first in the restaurant
  • And coming back.. grateful for ordering a Taxi
