Fodor's Review

After being wined and dined at this popular Chelsea Spanish restaurant, you'd never guess that chef Alexandra Raij is from very un-Spanish Minneapolis. Her husband and business partner is, though, and the duo put on an impressive show. The theme is cucina vasca, or Basque cuisine, one of the most exciting regions in Iberia for eating. Raij captures the moment by serving standouts like juicy lamb meatballs in a minty broth, crispy beef tongue, and an addictive crabmeat gratin. The wine list at Txikito (pronounced Chi-kee-toe) is loaded with great bottles of Rioja and other tempranillos, many of which are from Basque winemakers.
