This is a very tiny corner bistro that is full of noise, ambience, friendly wait staff and AMAZING Basque food prepared in home cooked fashion! Lamb stew and spicy lamb grinders are not to be missed! Mushroom starters and croquettes These are totally amazing!!

Delicious food, fantastic history of the building and surrounding area. Great for lunch or after work. I've tried every item on the menu over the years and all options have exceeded expectations! Grinders, chorizo, crochetes, cheese plates, the list goes on. YUM!
