Florence Fabricant, in her New York Times cuisine column, has just written about Peter and Susan Yi opening a cider house with a very Basque style in Brooklyn.
And it’s a Basque cider house all right: txotx, cheese and walnuts, Spanish omelette with cod, big steaks — and all accompanied with local ciders set up in a large industrial pavilion, with, of course, communal tables, just like the traditional Basque restaurants out west.
Grub Street, a website focused on the New York food scene, has also published a report by Chris Crowley about this Basque cider house.

Here’s New York City’s New Hard-Cider Headquarters
New York is a hard-cider capital, and as the beverage has regained popularity among more curious drinkers, the number of producers in this state has ballooned. (From 8 in 2014, the governor’s office says, to 24 in 2016.) In May 2015, Peter Yi and his partners bought Twin Star Orchards, a New Paltz apple farm that they converted into a cidery.
