You’ll recall that Mr. Bauer had some complaints about how dark it was at Txoko in North Beach. Well, now the boys (chef Ian Begg and partner Ryan Maxey) have tried to fix that, adding some lighting to the dining room, as the Chron reports. Also, the pinxtos/tapas thing seemed to confuse people, so they’re just doing “starters” and “entrées,” with some pinxtos still available at the bar. See the new menu here, which includes a delicious sounding monkfish stew with sherry and monkfish liver. [Chron, Earlier slideshow]
