Pronounced “shoko”, these gastronomical clubs originated in the Basque region of Spain in 1870 as informal places for men to meet, eat, drink and talk, their name coming from the word for “cozy corner”. Originally closed culinary societies, they were places where Basque men could cook, eat, sing, and speak the Basque language without state control. Today, Txokos are found all over the world, and have taken on many different forms, from informal gatherings of friends to a chartered society with a formal location and cooking facilities.
Our Txoko USA is the perfect place for friends, guests and community to gather around the shared experience of upscale, amazingly creative, and deliciously healthy fresh dining. Located in the west Los Angeles facility of NutriFit, it is the passion project of co-founder, Jackie Keller and Executive Sous Chef, Oscar Gonzalez. Comfortably seating 14 guests, the dining room can be booked for private events or virtual experiences.
We hope you’ll join us, and invite those in your circles to do the same. What awaits you is a world exciting meals, fabulous beverages, engaging conversations and unique experiences.
