Description

Village Voice's Description

I guess an authentically great Basque restaurant like they have in Boise, Idaho and Bakersfield, California would be too much to hope for. A place where even the humble red bean soup--fortified with a powerful lamb stock--is so delicious you could eat it forever. Instead, we have a cooking school version of Basque food. Even though the baccalao-stuffed pimentos and the crispy roast chicken are admirable, too many of the more ambitious dishes fall flat, like merluza, a tepid fish stew that seems more concerned with the preening beauty of its ingredients than with delivering lusty Basque flavors.

Tips from foursquare

    Go Tuesday nights for half-off tapas, and order sangria! Inexpensive, great food, and live band!

  • Chaska M. on 02/01/10

    Have a Serrano ham and Manchego platter and drink tequila with Sangritas.

    Got a LivingSocial coupon that would take care of $50 worth of food. Unfortunately, the food was so good & filling that we only satisfied $39 worth. So worth it! P.S. try the bacon wrapped dates.
