Tonight's meal, at his second restaurant finds us at a table for 10 right in front of the kitchen where we can see he and his crew preparing our dishes. They wear baseball shirts with the restaurant name and two meat cleavers framing the words. Their ball caps have various logos on them and the chef wears his turned backwards. Our dishes include baked whole trout that arrives in a large casserole surrounded by carrots and others enjoy steak grilled with roasted vegetables.
The staff sets the wines on the table. The bottles are simply opened and passed around family style. The reds are two different vineyard designates from Bodegas Catena Zapata: Saint Felicien Malbec and another 85% Malbec- 15% Cabernet from Nicasia Vineyard. A floral Torrentes from Bodegas Alta Vista makes eyebrows of even the most red-centric of us to rise in delight.
After this meal, we will all sleep well!
