MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This love letter to Argentine cooking arrives courtesy of Chef John Manion, who spent much of his childhood in Sao Paulo, Brazil and traveling through South America. Look beyond the jade-green tiled exterior to find this cool hot spot. Its slender space is lined with black brick, white mortar and wood slats, and leads to an enormous open-hearth oven in the rear. Tiny votives and potted plants warm the room with an of-the-moment vibe.

Wood-fired grilled dishes figure largely on this menu, where diners may also uncover comfort food favorites like golden-fried empanadas chock-full of spicy beef and sweet golden raisins. Then look forward to morcilla set over a thin purée of white beans and hit with charred shishito peppers for that extra bit of kick.
