Le Chistera information
A local gathering spot, this aromatic, traditional Basque place is named for the chistera (scooplike racquet) that pelota players strap to their wrists. It's decorated with motifs from the sport, thanks to two generations of owners who are former professional players and its Basque cuisine is some of the best in town.
