Alex Raij and Eder Montero have excelled in smart Spanish fare at Txikito, El Quinto Pino and their Michelin-starred, Moorish-spiced La Vara. Now the wife-and-husband team breaks out of its comfort zone with this all-day Cobble Hill café, fitted with whitewashed marble and local-artist murals inside the former home of Ted & Honey. Taking its name and credo from the Guarani word tekoha (meaning “where you are, what you are”), the space shifts gears throughout the day: Breakfast includes single-origin coffee, house-baked pastries (sticky date–honey buns) and egg dishes (scrambled with crème fraîche, oeufs mayonnaise with tarragon); lunch is in the soup-salad-sandwich vein, with options like a three-bean salad with ham-bone vinaigrette and a grown-up grilled cheese with anchovies and piquillo peppers. Rotating dinner specials, a small wine list and house cocktails will soon come.
