Great basque food, not so great setting

This is a space that does not do justice to the quality of the food put out by the kitchen. The space consists of two rooms....the front room has a plain (drab?) bar with sets of small, two-person tables in the space behind it. This space is a small step above a cafeteria. The adjacent room is a... read more

I've been here twice now and have mixed feelings about it. It's in a kind of quiet location, 9th ave between 24th and 25th, next door to Sullivan St Bakery and CoPane. Interior is dark and exposed-wood walls, there is a bar and also table service seating. They also have a secondary dining room for private parties. Atmosphere is a... More

Cozy Spanish restaurant in Chelsea. I tried a couple of their "sugerencias del dia" - (daily specialties) and they were great. Their cochinillo was crispy on the outside and extremely tender. One of the best I've ever eaten and I am a big fan of Spanish food. And the wine they suggested was very affordable and quite nice.

My wife and I were very happy to have tasty Basque pintxos here, the best I've had this side of Donostia. Yes, this is New York an the prices are a bit steep, but the quality is there. You can choose between very small plates, mid-sized plates, and full entrees ... all to share. The suckling pig was the best.... More

We went last Friday with another couple who had just been to San Sebastian and were fans of Basque food. Patatak Mentaiko: crisp fries, spicy cod roe mayo were so addictive we ordered a second serving. Everything was amazing, the skewers of Basque anchovy, guindilla pepper, olives and the squid ribbons were delicious. The restaurant is small and noisy but... More

The food here is pretty good, thoughtfully prepared. The ambiance is okay, tables are small and the interior is very plain. I asked the waiter for recommendations. I said that I wanted to try something very authentic. Evidently you shouldn't ask for help in this restaurant. The waiter, who I learned was from San Sebastián, Spain, got right in my... More

It's hard to find a restaurant in New York that has all four elements of a good experience: good service, good decor/location, ability to get a table, and actually good food. Txikito definitely hits all 4, as does its sister restaurant in Cobble Hill, La Vara. Inventive delicious dishes, which are actually large enough to share among 3 or even... More

By far one of the best meals I'd had in NY to date. I'm a fan of Basque tapas; however, this place is simply amazing. Every dish we sampled, we loved; with the exception of the tongue. I'd say my favorite dish was the Desnudos. Wait to hear the specials before you decide. I'd go back for sure!

This is a superb restaurant primarily serving Basque food. They have a good variety of dishes, a great choice of tapas in case you choose not to have a large entrée, and all supported by a very good wine list. The staff is warm and friendly, the ambience is casual - what more can anyone want?

Excellent food, small tapas plates. Good selection of wines too, and the desserts are a must-have. The location is a little different, in a kind of strip mall on 9th Ave in Chelsea north of Chelsea Market

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
