NOLAchef-pop-up-Santi-iLatina-Mondays-Buenos-Aires

This Monday at Nola we’re hosting our first Pop-Up!

Details-

Chef Santi Macías from iLatina is taking over the kitchen slinging Mexican street food after feeling inspired from his latest travels.

Doors open at 5 and close at midnight.

As always, no reservations and cash only.

Micheladas and jalapeño margaritas will be served along with four styles of Broeders Artesanal on tap.

There will be no fried chicken or other Nola offerings. Santi’s menu will feature tacos, flautas, quesadillas and a couple other spicy goodies.

Prices range from 50-100 pesos per plate.

Happy hour from 5-8 with 30 peso pints.

Location- Gorriti 4389, corner of Julian Alvarez, Palermo Viejo.

IT’S GOING TO BE AMAZING.

Expect more of these type of events at Nola! On Monday, October 13th we’ll be doing another Pop-Up with Chef Jose Alvarez, sous chef of Union Square Cafe in NYC. He’s moving to Buenos Aires and we couldn’t be more excited to have such another talented chef take over our kitchen, this time with Puerto Rican cuisine!

Besos and buen finde!

Te quiero, La Alacena Cafe

I can’t express how thankful I am for pickupthefork.com.

For those of you outside of BA… Pick up the Fork is BA’s biggest food blog and it happens to be in English. The Chicago blonde responsible for it’s hilarious content has been in Argentina for nearly a decade braving new and old restaurants to which she then shares her experiences doing the homework for all of us hungry lazy eaters.

A month or so ago she published an article on new places that have recently opened (NOLA Gastropub included!) and luckily a few of them are not too far from my door.

La Alacena is one of the featured restaurants and my new go-to lunch spot, a treasure in this laid back capital.

Lil bit of life!

Hola!!

Wednesday afternoon here in Buenos Aires, and while the bread rises and Stevie Nicks fills the restaurant, I’ve managed to somehow carve out a few minutes to give you a bit of what’s going on here in my new crazy life.

First off, Wednesdays are my new Mondays. And I must admit it’s quite strange on Wednesdays when I see friends and my BA family and one of the first things out my mouth is, ‘how was your weekend?’. I get a lot of funny looks these days…

Lots of new things these days truthfully!

Where shall we begin?

Reflections

It’s Sunday morning (well, half past one actually) and I have a bit of Liza time before I have to head to NOLA. We had our first rain last night in a long time and there is something a bit serene about this particular Sunday morning. I am very much appreciating stillness these days!

My favorite piece of NOLA Gastropub press

On Sunday we were featured in the local paper.

I realized this at around 5pm and couldn’t hit the streets in search for a copy as the kitchen was already in full swing for Happy Hour service at NOLA Gastropub.
Luckily the journalist tweeted a link and I hurried to the computer, sat down with my hot lemon water and gave it a read.
It’s written so well, it almost seems like a tale.

I love it and thought you might enjoy it too, so here it is-

the smaller details of NOLA Gastropub

Hola!!

The red beans are on the stove along with the gumbo for tonights service and I have a twenty minute break before I have to get back in the kitchen so I thought I’d throw a post up real quick, as I’m really excited about our latest addition to the local, and you know me and excitement, I need to let it out….!

Readers, meet G.

June 26, last Beer Night at NOLA

NOLAchef-beer-night-broeders-artesanal-beers-argentina

Hola friends!

Quick and last minute note that tonight will be our last Beer Night with Broeders Artesnal here in Palermo.

But don’t worry!

It’s because we’re so close to opening the gastropub and we need to stock up on as much craft beer as possible!

The past year has been a blast working with brothers Marce and Ticol (aka Francisco) on Thursday nights. We experimented with countless fried chicken & biscuit recipes as well as sampled some of their interesting brews such as Golden Rosemary, Basil IPA and Pecan Stout.
