La Cuchara de San Telmo, San Sebastián

28 Calle 31 de Agosto
San Sebastián
Tel: 34 943 420 840's insider take:

Cuchara serves up the most sophisticated pintxos in town: tomatoes stuffed with ventresca (tuna belly) and bonito, crispy pig's ear with garbanzos, and creamy sweetbread croquettes. The place draws crowds of food-obsessed twenty- and thirtysomethings; it's not your aita's (father's) pintxos bar (though one bite would probably win him over). If the weather's good, come early to snag one of the four outdoor tables, order a glass of red wine from Rioja or Navarra, and watch the foot traffic in the Casco Viejo.
