Putting the pieces together: 1.Enrico's went dark on Broadway about a month ago. 2. Ian Begg and Ryan Maxey of the neighboring Naked Lunch sandwich shop have been looking for a space for a San Sebastián style tapas joint for quite some time. So the news that broke today makes perfect sense. The boys will give birth to Txoko right next door, capitalizing on the wood burning oven to create seasonal pintxos and larger dishes. Shockingly, there will be no pizza. Jeremy Fish will be helping out with the dining room and we're guessing it'll involve a mural since he does those so nicely. Hopeful opening window here is April.
