Grand-opening Saturday, LCA's a next-level incarnation of Don Panza, a shuttered Argentine resto in Clarendon whose name got it frequently mistaken for a Mexican place; in a refurbished house equipped with an L-shaped, downtown-facing patio, the new spot's cozily wooded interior features a wavy stone-topped bar, a ceiling-mounted wagon wheel, and a mannequin wearing a showy gaucho outfit -- not as hot as Kim Cattrall, but then again he wouldn't talk about having sex with dudes 1/3 his age.
