"What a revelation! The sprawling, free-standing building with parking lot not only houses foreshortened pelota fronton, mostly used by racquetball players, and a ballroom where dancing classes go on, but a comfortable, old fashioned, hotel-style dining room with green carpeting, an acoustic ceiling between half-timbered beams, print wall paper and white-linen covered tables."
"The dining room accommodates many large groups at long tables, plus deuces and four tops. Singles sit at the long, polished wood bar watching sports on TV. A separate private dining room is almost always full."
"The wine list is a miracle, full of perfectly drinkable riojas, bordeaux and bottles from Irouleguy and Cotes de Ventoux for $17 to $25. Cocktails, like Makers Mark Manhattans ($5) are perfectly made."
"Kudos to chef Michel Veron and manager Francois Camou for attending to every aspect of the experience at The Basque Cultural Center."
