The entrance to Euzkadi is impressive. So much so that the mosiac – which paves the sidewalk of its entrance – sort of lets you know that one is about to eat a really good meal. The L-shaped restaurant serves Basque cuisine and this place does not only offer incredible food, it also has a romantic setting along with a wait staff who are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve you. While you wait for your food to be served, I suggest that you entertain yourself simply by looking at the ceilings of the restaurant. The ceilings  are covered with paintings of running bulls. Bulls are very prevalent in Spain, or so I have been told and this art work is so illustrative that I had a tough trying not to look at it all of the time.  I went with a friend of mine and we simply asked our waitress  to “serve us whatever you think is best” and she did not disappoint. About 15 minutes later, what are called “tapas” arrived which consisted of a plate of dates wrapped in bacon with an almond nut on the inside, along with duck meatballs and fried goat cheese which was glazed in honey. These dishes were such a refreshing, pleasant surprise. I absolutely recommend this place. I can not wait to go back. Euzkadi is located on 108 East 4th St., New York, NY 10003.
