From the owners who brought you The Iberian Pig, Sugo, and Double Zero: a new chic Spanish Basque spot has arisen. Cooks & Soldiers has quickly attracted an audience of upscale tapas eaters from around the city. The bar is a beautiful focal point as well as the eye-catching and creative dishes that come out of the kitchen.
Chistorra in a blanket
Cooks & Soldiers takes the American classic of Pigs and a Blanket and cranks it up quite a few notches. Hot dogs are replaced with Chistorra sausage, and the croissant with cider glaze is above and beyond your frozen pastry dough. The maple-mustard aioli dipping sauce is just icing on the cake.
Don’t be fooled by the name, this is a grilled cheese that will make you never care if you fit in a bikini again. It’s indulgent and rich and the combination of white American cheese, Jamon Iberico, and black truffle warm and sandwiched together on white bread will glorify your childhood days.
