Take a visual journey through Maite, Bushwick’s rustic Basque-inspired restaurant. Beware, the food is mouth-watering and packed with comforting flavors.
By Nicholas Doyle
I just experienced Maite for the first time, and I have to admit, I’ve been missing out. This rustic basque-inspired spot opened in Bushwick in 2015, but I’m just getting to it now. I love the aged wood, tin ceilings, and brick alcoves. There are a lot of fun little accents around the place, too. I’m particularly fond of the old cameras converted into wall sconces. Look on for some photos of the place at night, along with many highlights from the menu.
