A spellbinding taste of Spain's Basque country is in store at Cooks & Soldiers, where you'll find a mix of classic pintxos (Basque tapas); more experimental small plates with a touch of molecular gastronomy mixed in; and hearty, smoky entrées from the wood-fired asador grill. Meat lovers should order up a massive, bone-in, one-kilo rib eye to share, while the veg-centric can opt for the delightfully beef-free tartare, sporting a chunky tomato base and a perfectly formed sphere of carrot purée replacing the typical egg yolk. Don't forget a gin and tonic or a spritzy glass of Spanish txakoli (the local white wine of Basque country) to keep you company.
