In case our coverage of the pintxos scene in Spain's San Sebastian in Sunday's Travel section piqued your appetite for visiting the best eating city of its size in Europe (our not-so unbiased opinion), we just learned that San Sebastian will be holding its first San Sebastian Restaurant Week on April 10-22. More than 20 city restaurants are offering a set menu costing 25 euros (about $33), and reservations can be made online after April 1 at the San Sebastian Tourism Booking Center (www.sansebastianreservas.com). That same web site will also start offering a series of six Gastro Breaks after Easter. The mini-vacations include two nights' accommodation, a gastronomic activity, a guided tour, and San Sebastian welcome pack. They will cover six different gastronomic themes: txakoli (the tangy Basque white wine), pintxos, traditional Basque gastronomy, New Basque cooking, secrets of culinary techniques, and cider houses. Prices vary. Book them all for a gastronomic feast.
