Definitely worth a visit!

Prior to coming to Manhattan, we were planning out our trip and wanted to have some pinxtos/tapas -- hoping for more authentic than "Americanized." We were NOT disappointed in Txikito.

This restaurant has a youthful vibe and is located about seven blocks from Madison Square Garden. The food is really good. Every pinxto we had was superb. The portions are not big--because they're not supposed to be. The wine list is very good as well. We were two couples, and everyone was happy with their meal. I'd go back.

Having been to Pays Basque, we know the quality of food and wine there. What Txikito is proposing is ok but it is not nearly close to real basque cuisine. Come on. French fries with mayo ? Seriously ? The plate Pulpo tasted (sadly) 100% as lemon zest instead of octopus. Service was ok. 300$ for 3 people with wine.

We started with the croquetas, which, to use a tired adjective, sublime. I don't know what other word to use to describe something that makes your eyes roll to the back of your head and your tongue do jumping jacks, so "sublime" it is. The blistered peppers were really spicy, then the next one wasn't, then the next one was.... More

Small plate Spanish Basque Country foods - also offering full size platters for one or to share. Service was quick and friendly and informative. Once we ordered the food, it came out in very quick succession. The foie gras was like butter, and the cured pork loin simply melted in your mouth. Everything was cooked perfectly and reasonably priced for... More

Dining at Txikito was my introduction to Basque cuisine, and I'm hooked. Every dish was beautifully presented, and was bursting with flavor. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. We let them know at the beginning of the meal that we had a concert to attend, and our server timed everything perfectly. Wine recommendations were spot on. Looking forward to returning... More

The restaurant is broken up into two rooms, probably as a result of expansion. The room where you enter has a lot of tables for two. At this Basque tapas restaurant I started off with the gratin of artichoke ($7) which was good, but not something that I would order again on a repeat visit. After that I had the... More

Delicious food, especially the seafood, just perfectly salty goodness. The server was excellent and made some perfect wine recommendations. The tables for two, in the same room with the bar, are set close together in the rear of the restaurant, with no nearby window. The space is nicely decorated. The room holding larger table is nicer, and of course, with... More

A tiny and friendly restaurant where the waiters are knowledgeable and helpful. The diners are friendly as well and the table next to us asked our feedback on each dish since they arrived a little later than us. We tried 8 plates and 2 desserts, and each one was unique and very tasty. I'd definitely come here again!

Interesting Basque small plates in a charming little restaurant. Perfect for a late night snack for two. If you like Spanish tapas, you will enjoy Txikito, the Sangria was great!

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.
