Mardi Gras celebrations at Nola!


Hola hola!

How is everyone? Cold? Melting? Happy with 2015 so far?

Things are good here. Other than the mosquitos!

I swear they’re breeding in my apartment. It’s actually something I’m trying to figure out. They love my closets!! And the kitchen. What’s up with that? Don’t they need to breed in water? Every time I open one of the closet doors (yes, one of them, we have like 10! Amazeballs, I know.) like 20+ mosquitos fly out. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT THIS? Seriously, tell me.

On to more exciting things… Mardi Gras is around the corner!


Back in action, vamos 2015!


Buen dia! That’s right, it’s a good morning. The neighborhood is quiet which is a massive turn on as we are surrounded by construction that never seems to stop.  Momo rests in the shade and I catch up on the Nisman madness that is happening in Argentina.  This country…. I write from the cursed couch, […]


Chochan Pop-Up at Nola, Sunday, November 16


This Sunday we’re hosting another Pop-Up here at Nola!

It’s going to be a night of pork, pork and more pork.

I assume for those of you in Buenos Aires, you know about Chochan down in San Telmo? If not, GO NOW. And order the sandwich de lengua and 10 hamburgers. Best burger I’ve had in BA. Hands down. If she was on my end of town, I’d be inhaling those babies everyday. Word.

Well, we’re lucky enough to have the chef/owner, aka badass Naiara, taking over our Palermo kitchen with a menu that is guaranteed to leave you oinking. Another woman in the kitchen, I LOVE IT.

As always, doors open at 5 with happy hour til 8, featuring 30 peso pints of Broeders Artesanal on tap.

The menu-

Tacos de lengua & Tacos Vegetarianos

Ribs con tamarindo con ensalada de mango y repollo

Croquetas de papa y morcilla con alioli de manzana

Ssäm de panceta con remolacha

Némesis de choco amagro con crema y toffee

Reminder- the regular NOLA menu will not be available Sunday, November 16. The pig is taking over!

Reservations are not accepted and the kitchen closes at 11:30, or when we run out of food, which tends to be around 10:30/11 mas o menos on Pop-Up nights. As always, there is no table service at Nola, order at the bar and pick up your food from the kitchen when your name is called.

The night will be cash only and NOLA is located at Gorrtiti 4389, corner of Julian Alvarez.

Have a great weekend, and please forgive me for the previous cursing, PawPaw!


Enjoying a bit of Spring, I think!


Liza here.

Reporting from Pain et Vin on a Thursday at 3:35!

How is that possible? That means you’re not at NOLA?

Shouldn’t you be slaving away in the kitchen making the damn brioche???


I have a new schedule thanks to Chef Jose!

Things change a lot around here.


Mexican Street Food Pop-Up, Monday Sept 29


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


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.


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!


the smaller details of NOLA Gastropub



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


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.
