Pintxo Pincho Tapas Bar, open just over a month in the space occupied by the former Woburn Caffe Restaurant and Pizzeria, is owned by Joaquin Galan and Pepe Pineiro. The two friends, who met when they worked at Cafe Sol Azteca in Newton, talked for years about owning their own place. The 50-seat spot -- with an adaptation of Picasso’s “Guernica” painted on a wall by sous chef Rafael Camano -- is the realization of their dream.

Galan is the chef; it was he who came to our table and explained how he cooks octopus. At Pintxo Pincho, he’s making family recipes (his parents owned three restaurants in Malaga in southern Spain).
