Washing down tapas with wine or cider has been a Spanish delight for centuries. At Taverna Basca Iradi, the traditional vibe is replicated within a restaurant that’s constantly in motion. Iradi begins with a counter space where typical San Sebastian pintxos (the Basque term for tapas) are served, from fois gras to bacon-wrapped shrimp and everything in between. Pick one of the plates lined up on the counter and consume heartily. Your bill is tabulated based on the number of toothpicks left on the plate. Drop by early for the best selection — the toothpicks pile up fast in the evening.
