NOLA pub has exposed brick!

You have NO idea how happy this makes me!!

I’ve requested this from NOLA pub Day #1.

No, it’s not a fun job, but neither is cleaning out deep fryers or polishing wine glasses.

We all have parts of our work that we don’t want to do, BUT WE DO THEM.

Heated discussions made these bricks appear!

Don’t tell me I can’t, I will just stand taller.

Justice and victory!!!

That is all.

Gracias, Victor . La rompiste!

flashback Fierro Sunday

NOLAchef-fierro-sunday-rbunch-buenos-aires

Last Sunday Ticol and I treated ourselves to a fancy brunch at the Fierro Hotel. It was also the perfect excuse to grab my new camera and practice some food photos in the natural light!
It all happened very last minute on Easter Sunday.

We woke in the early afternoon with big appetites and no desire to jump straight in the kitchen as we had service that night at NOLA for 18 guests. (Days of service means 5 hours of prep + 3 hour dinner + 1 hour cleanup. It’s a lot of kitchen time and I try to stay clear of the cocina beforehand.)

We called Fierro and they told us they were booked however if anything opened up they’d give us a buzz.

And then they did and we threw ourselves together and jumped in a cab.

It was exactly how I remembered it….

NOLAchef-mexican-restaurant-palermo-buenos-aires-real-revolucion

A new Mexican restaurant, Reál Revolucion, opened in Palermo Soho a few weeks back.

The space is huge and it’s about a block from Plaza Serrano, on Honduras between Thames and Uriarte.

I’ve only been once, but I can proudly say it’s the best Mexican food I’ve had in Buenos Aires. NO, that doesn’t necessary carry much weight considering the Mexican food scene is rather horrendous, I know…

It’s so interesting to see the process from start to finish.

So bare in the beginning. Then a complete fucking mess. Stripped to the bones and rebuilt with purpose and care. I’m so pumped to see the final product!!

Meet Marcelo aka Chelo. An Argentino that’s been working in the construction business for over 30 years.

We’re thrilled to have him on our team!

I actually first met Chelo at Mexican Pop-Up a couple of years back and he’d sit at the counter top of the open kitchen and sip whisky on the rocks while we talked about our shared obsession over Led Zeppelin.
