Francesca's menu consists of pinxtos, Basque bar
snacks that are smaller than tapas (in San Sebastian, they're often
served on toothpicks), plus some small plates and larger raciones.
Jamones figure heavily, as do salty Idziabal cheese and the marinated
white anchovies known as boquerones.
The wine list leans Spanish, too, with the Basque vino txakoli
making an appearance, poured in the traditional style from several feet
up in the air.
