Long shot request about Jim Becker | Rauxa's Spanish Olives

tatsu | Apr 20, 2010 04:20 PM

Over ten years ago there was a Spanish place where Precinct stands now, at 70 Union Sq. It was called Rauxa.

Jim Becker the owner/chef, had these absolutely amazing olives that he marinated himself. I have never eaten an olive like it again. They were served on the house at the bar, but I would literally go every week and buy a to go carton for 6 or 7 bucks, I was a kid obsessed with his olives!

So Rauxa didn't last long, much like the fate of Elephant Walk before it, and Jim Becker went on to a place in the South End which I forgot the name of, it is or was next to Pho Republique/Morse Fish.

Anyway, does anyone know of Jim Becker, remember these olives, or tell me anything about them? I never met Jim Becker. Over the years I've occasionally asked in the biz foodies, but no one's been able to tell me anything.
