A posh Basque eatery by way of Chelsea, with a Hawaiian chef at the helm, Bar Basque marries more than a couple disparities with notable success. Although the long, dark bar, wide-open dining room, and glass ceiling might give the impression of a “scene” more than of cuisine, Chef Yuhi Fujinaga creates plates that showcase both Basque culinary heritage and his own bold palate; a flash-fried farm egg swimming in Idiazabal cheese broth is like haute Basque soul food. Pastry Chef Celeste Reyes offers even more warmth to heat up the big space, with belly-loving desserts like a tender tres leches and an organic egg yolk flan.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Crispy Farm Egg, Olive Oil-crushed Potatoes, Roasted Red Pepper, Serrano Ham, and Idiazabal Cheese Broth
  • Crispy Suckling Pig, Pepito-wrapped Asparagus, English Pea Purée, Heirloom Cochinillo, Crujiente Frijoles, and Morcilla
