If you've got Basque food on your mind, a recent opening is need-to-know. Located at 142 Sullivan St. in SoHo, the new addition is called Haizea.
Opened by chef Mikel de Luis — a native of Bilbao, Spain, and a former chef at Soho House New York — the new restaurant specializes in Basque and Catalonian-inspired small plates. Haizea, whose name means "wind" in Basque, is currently offering a full takeout menu of meat, seafood, vegetable dishes and more. Check out the trio of croquetas with aioli, the crispy calamari on ciabatta, the Wagyu beef sandwich with Roncal cheese, and the slow-cooked tripe stew. Haizea is also offering packaged goods for sale, such as imported nuts, oils, sweets and jams.
The fresh arrival has gotten an enthusiastic response thus far, with a five-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.
Ale C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on June 15, wrote, "I loved it! Food is amazing, and the people working there are really nice."
Yelper Penélope F. added, “Delightful experience. Best octopus I've tried in the city."
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Haizea is open from noon–7 p.m. on Wednesday-Friday, noon–9 p.m. on Saturday and noon–6 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday and Tuesday.)
