My husband and I were trying to find a restaurant that wasn't packed(recession??) and decided to try this one. What a great choice. I had gone to another Basque restaurant out of habit, and this one is so much cozier and just as good food. Chalet Basque is our choice from now on. I had the halibut which was grilled just right and my husband had the New York Steak. It was cooked perfectly and was very tender. We started with the bread, beans and soup, and followed with salad, pickled tomatoes, french fries and pickled tongue. We were already full, and then the entree came. I took a lot of mine home, as did my husband. A great meal, in a great restaurant. We will never keep going back to the same old choice when this taught us that new can sometimes be just as good, or even better.
