An ode to mid-century Argentina, this bi-level restaurant's stated mission is to encourage a slower, European pace of consumption, whether in the swankily dim cocktail lounge (where a green & gold onyx bartop's tactfully underlit by LEDs), the elegantly wood-worked, mod-white, open-kitchen dining room, or the three-tiered patio; the concept was hatched by a former energy-trader and his silent partner, an old college buddy who's totally classic once you get a few beers in him.
