Travel Diaries: The Best Meal in Marbella

You know how it is. A new restaurant opens and it can go two ways. You’re either the first in there or you wait to see what the reviews are like before you venture in. Normally, I fall into the first category, but this time around, it took a while. A whole year, to be precise. And boy, did it turn out to be one of the best meals I’ve…
