A new neighbourhood hot-spot has opened in St-Gilles. Britxos, by La Britannique, will be serving up tasty British and international bites all week long.
You may remember our post about La Britannique’s Sunday brunch a few months back. We’ve been raving fans of Alex and his team ever since, so we were delighted to hear he was opening a restaurant. Last night we were invited to the opening party of Britxos, for a sneak peek.
The bright airy space on the corner of Rue de Savoie and Rue de l’Albanie is dominated by the bar. The walls are painted with chalk-board paint and were covered with colourful greetings for the party.
The name, Britxos (pronounced Brit-chos), is a combination of British and Pintxos, the Basque word for tapas. It combines Alex’s British roots with his passion for international tastes and travel, (and you know we can get behind that!)
Britxos will offer breakfast and lunch (take-away is available if you need to eat on the run) as well as afternoon tea and after work tapas. If the nibbles we sampled last night are an indication, we’re excited to try more!
But Britxos is more than your neighbourhood café. They will also offer cooking classes, special events and a shop packed with gourmet gifts.
Ready for a taste yet? The official opening is today, Monday, June 4th. From now until the 14th of June, they are offering three free tapas, with every drink you buy, with a voucher you can print here.
What are you waiting for? We hope to see you at Britxos soon!
