Botellón, or Spanish for "big bottle," is a cultural phenomenon in which friends get together and pitch in on a bottle to share, so they can socialize & drink without breaking the bank. At our restaurant, we work to capture the essence of a Botellón by offering a well-rounded, high end dining experience, with a home-style feel. We At Botellón we take learned techniques from around the world, and apply them to traditional Spanish food, with a focus on the styles of the Basque region, combined with Mediterranean influence. The food of the Basque region traditionally involves simple, high quality ingredients, executed with classic techniques that allow the bold and complex flavors to truly resonate. The region is widely known throughout history to have traded ideas and foods worldwide, and thus cultivated a heritage that naturally merges culinary traditions from around the world to create something distinctly Spanish flavored.
