Here, we spotlight American expats around the globe and get their insider tips on the best places to eat and drink in their adopted cities.
The Expat: Former F&W staffer Kevin Patricio, who decamped to San Sebastián three years ago. Today, the Baltimore native is the chef at La Madame, whose worldly menu items stand out among the traditional pintxos (small bites) and cerebrally avant-garde creations that abound in this city overrun with outstanding food. Patricio also makes microbrews through the Basqueland Brewing Project, and in July, he launched a pop-up taco stand at La Concha beach. He and his wife, Basque native Maite Montenegro, live with their two young sons in an apartment overlooking the sea.
