Personally, I was just excited to get back to a big city after a few months in a quiet beach town. Finally there were tons of people, basketball games, pubs, and a modern art museum.
My favorite areas oof the city are Ada Island, The Fortress, and The Bohemian district. There are some amazing places to eat, far too many to name but I would definitely single out Toro and Sofa down by the river. They are right on the water and some of the most eclectic menus in town. Fois gras ravioli, roast duck, Spanish croquettes, chicken empanadas, and much much more.
