Txikiteo’s passionate staff love bringing you unique and unexpected food, wine, and hospitality.
Owner Elizabeth Tullis is the animating force behind Txikiteo and its sister property, the Modern Hotel and Bar. An Idaho native, Elizabeth inherited the hospitality gene from her grandmother, Regina Echevarria, who opened the first Modern Hotel in Nampa at the height of the Great Depression.
David is Txikiteo’s manager/cook; in his words, he helps with the day-to-day operations, and helps plan and prepare the menus. In our words, he’s responsible for creating the dishes that use locally-sourced ingredients with an integrity of flavor, creativity, and quality. He’s been cooking since he was nineteen, from New York to Portland, and landed in Boise with his beautiful wife, hilarious son (we’ve met him; he’s also charming), and two dogs, lured by the inexpensive housing and quality of life.
Tifany King literally grew up in a restaurant. Her father was a chef for thirty years at the country club in the town where she was raised in northern California. “The first art project I ever made was a paperweight for my dad that I painted with a chef’s hat on it,” she says. “My earliest memories are of running through the kitchen after a swim in the clubhouse pool, and him yelling at me for having bare feet in a commercial kitchen!”
