DAY 1: 6-Course Traditional Basque Dinner Series
To kick off 2019, we're heading back to Txikito for what will surely be an unforgettable collaboration with NYC's veritable queen of Spanish cuisine, Chef Alex Raij! Our first collaboration with Txikito took place almost a year ago, and it was one of the top-rated event series' of 2018. So, when Chef Raij reached out recently to invite us back for Round 2, we jumped at the opportunity. As a refresher, Txikito is where husband and wife chef team, Alex Raij and Eder Montero, profess their love for Spanish Basque cuisine. The duo also own and operate La Vara, the Michelin-starred Basque-inspired eatery in Cobble Hill, Saint Julivert Fisherie, also in Cobble Hill, and El Quinto Pino, which is located just down the street from Txikito. We'll be taking over the dining room of the restaurant for this event series and Chef Raij will be coming out of the kitchen throughout the evening to introduce the courses, share stories, and participate in a Q&A during dessert.
