Cooks & Soldiers brings the cuisine and cultural experience of Spain’s Basque region to the flourishing West Midtown area. The menu is divided into “pintxos tradicionales,” or tapas-like snacks served atop toasted bread; “pinxtos especiales,” or Basque-inspired small plates; “asador” including a variety of wood-grilled fish, meats and vegetables; and a selection of unique and modern desserts. Behind the bar, Cooks & Soldiers offers guests an extensive collection of Basque and Spanish wines, txakoli and ciders, in addition to craft beer and signature cocktails. The cocktail list places a heavy emphasis on gin, offering a seasonal selection of house-infused tonics blended into gin tonics and other popular libations.
From the funky mosaic tiling to the red garage door-like wall, Cooks & Soldiers offers a contemporary space fit for socializing. The restaurant can accommodate as many as 60 guests with a variety of private dining options. Guests can choose between a selection of multiple private dining nooks partitioned by curtains for large parties, an open view of the asador wood-fire grill in the exhibition kitchen, and an outdoor patio that provides an extension of the restaurant’s charm for their event. More details are available upon request.
