At Kalimotxo, the new Spanish-inspired bar from the people behind Emmer & Rye, the bites are small, the music is loud, and you can make a complete mess of yourself by drinking from a porron, a glass wine pitcher you use to pour wine directly into your mouth. Or you can just get a gin & tonic and watch other people do it. The food is Basque-style pintxos – similar to tapas, but tinier – and small plates like jamón ibérico, a Spanish tortilla, seafood conservas, Basque cheesecake, and a very tasty pan con tomate. Kalimotxo would be a pretty perfect place to get some snacks and drinks after work, or you can order pintxos from the display case, slowly grazing while you practice the art of drinking from a porron.
