Pintxo’s chefs commit to using food harvested locally, transforming ingredients into Spanish-inspired dishes flavored with herbs and spices. Until midnight each night, diners nibble on small plates such as baby octopus or bacon-wrapped dates with goat cheese. Beyond tapas, the menu also boasts specially marinated beef and chicken skewers as well as raciones such as seared NY steak and pan roasted Arctic char filets. Dinner is served Sunday-Thursday, 5-10 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Perhaps more extensive than the menu is the drink list, which tops off a selection of domestic and international wines and beers with classic and specialty cocktails. The mixed drinks cull international flavors; raw sugar sweetens Brazilian caipirinhas, red wine mixes up with Mexican Coca-Cola, and crème de cassis infuses the eatery’s eponymous margaritas.
