Txori's Txrifecta

Carolin%20and%20Joseba.JPGYou know how sometimes it seems like you read about the same damn thing every time you turn around? Like Britney. Or Ron Paul. Or the Sonics. It's going to happen again this week, and the name you'll be hearing is Txori. (Think "chirp," like a birdie.) It's the new Basque café (more accurately, a pintxos bar) in Belltown owned by Joseba Jimenez de Jimenez and his wife, Carolin Messier de Jimenez, the couple who own Harvest Vine in Madison Park. Well, this is their week.

Seattle Pee-Eye plans a review on Friday. Stranger plans a review in Thursday's edition, and Gourmet.com launches its new website with a review by Mamster today. Seattle Times already did a piece (Small Places) and a mention (best bites). Cornichon and Seattlest? We were there weeks and weeks ago.

By far, just what we needed in town, great place!

Wow! Media score! I think spending $350,000 to remodel proves to people that you're serious. Another Txori highlight: Wally's Grocery next door, for some after-pinxtos fortified beers!
