The 58th International San Sebastian Film Festival started on September 16th and goes through the 25th. Julia Roberts will be there to receive a lifetime achievement award. But, San Sebastian is known more for its Michelin stars than its movie stars. Acclaimed chefs from all over the world make a pilgrimage to this seaside Basque city just for the food. It's not necessary to spend loads of euros to eat well. You can graze on simple and inventive pintxos (Basque tapas), which are made from the freshest local ingredients and will blow your mind. Here is a list from local chefs of places to hit.

Spent ten days there a few years ago, fabulous little city with the best food in the world. Not mentioned is the market that opens early in the morning. For breakfast, you can snack your way from one end to the other and come out the other side completely stuffed with delicious things. The bar crawl in the evening isn't the same as it would be in the States, where it would be a walking drunk. Wine is served in very small glasses so you can easily go all evening without getting wasted.
