Malbec House

We celebrated the birthday of one of my besties with a night full of Argentine wine, food, and tango. Since the birthday girl loves tango, we saw a beautiful, evocative production in the theatre at Tango House. The dancers were brilliantly talented! After the show, we headed next door to Malbec House for dinner, where we had a wonderful dining experience. The Malbec House staff were outstanding, including our server, Paula (super friendly and helpful), the Sommelier, Sebastian Koncurat (incredibly knowledgeable — he introduced us to two great wines that we hadn’t tried before), and the Sous Chef, Chris Li (the food was absolutely delicious). I personally loved the humita with sweetbread cracklings and hamachi, the lomita sandwich, the veal chop with foie gras, porchini, and brioche milanese, and the Barda Pinot Noir. We had the best time and can’t wait to return. A big thank you to everyone at Malbec House and Tango House for an amazing night of Argentine culture!
