Txikiteo    \chee-kee-tay-o\

noun    A Basque word denoting a pub crawl or stroll with friends to partake in coffee, tapas and wine.

Txikiteo is a new eatery in the Linen District. More European than American in its approach, Txikiteo is a neighborhood place to gather at any time of the day for coffee, tapas, charcuterie, wine and beer. Forget rushed and bland—the intimate space and sunny patio with firepits encourage a leisurely, convivial dining experience where locals gather to check in over a morning café con leche and maybe a plate of sunny eggs with sizzling chorizos (of course, those in a hurry can grab a coffee and scone to go); or a supper-time regroup with a glass of wine and a satisfying variety of entrée-type selections and tapas (small plates, big flavor): handcrafted aioli, white beans, and other toppings served with flavorful country bread; cod, lamb, and pork selections; creative and inspired charcuterie and cheese boards; and more.

Serving fresh, authentic dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, Txikiteo’s menu is internationally influenced yet locally procured.  Seasonal ingredients are appropriately featured (think summer cheeses, autumn vegetables), and will occasionally showcase the produce of great artisans from around the world.  Wine and beer selections range from an internationally curated wine list to locally brewed beer on tap.

Txikiteo \chee-kee-tay-o\ noun    Boise’s new community gathering spot with a deliberate, attentive approach to eating; a place to eat well, together.

Open seven days a week: Breakfast 7-11 daily; Lunch 11-4 daily; Dinner 4-10 Sunday-Thursday and 4-11 Saturday and Sunday.
