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.

Great service. Food was very good, but choices limited. Not cheap. The inside needs updating and the upholstery was saggy and uncomfortable. Probably needs some new cushions. Hopefully those plastic divider things go soon too. The waiter was however great.

I looooved your place and I keep going back but my last two visits weren’t great when it came to food. The staff is beyond amazing but everything that I’ve gotten the last two visits was burned or flavorless. The octopus was so much better a few months back and I couldn’t even finish the shrimp because it tasted like it was boiled. I love the place but I might not come back for a minute. By the way... your staff is truly amazing. P
