Experience authentic cuisine from Spain: Basque Tapas Bar Restaurant

Restaurateur Benny Castro created the original Basque in the village of Piermont, NY in 2018, featuring authentic cuisine from Spain, including an array of Spanish tapas, unique Paellas, Sangrias, and a full selection of Spanish wines. The second Basque location opened in Tarrytown, NY in 2022 with both locations focused on quality and hospitality in addition to authentic Spanish fare. Discover modern and enduring Spanish classics, such as its famous Paellas that introduces a real Paella to customers — how it should be made with Valencia rice and baked to perfection with a multi-textured blend of moist, chewy, and crispy caramelized rice. Both restaurants have received official certification from Spain as an authentic Restaurant from Spain. As walk-in restaurants where diners can feel at home, never rushed, reservations are only required for groups of six or more.
