Tango & Malbec Restaurant and Lounge serves a varied menu of authentic South American cuisine in a warm and elegant atmosphere. Rouse late-slumbering appetites without swallowing an alarm clock by munching brunch offerings, served 11 a.m.–3 p.m., such as chorizo argentino, which arrives with an entourage of eggs, mini arepitas, and queso frito ($12). In the afternoon, traditional Uruguayan sandwiches called chivitos bridge the gap between homemade bread with stacks of vegetables, provolone cheese, eggs, and exotic proteins including wild boar ($13) and ostrich ($14). The plate of Argentinean empanadas ($8)—similar to revealing that you are Santa Claus—is a bold conversation-starter, as are small plates such as fresh mussels sautéed in white wine and garlic ($8).

Grilled swordfish gets slathered in chimichurri sauce and simmers in a wood-burning oven ($26), and the pamplona smuggles prosciutto, provolone cheese, and olives into mouths in a boneless chicken thigh ($28). Tango & Malbec nestles its diners in rustic environs tinged with a modern flair. A playful palette of reds and blacks colors the space, and exposed-brick walls and the sultry strains of tango music surround guests.

Tango & Malbec

Recalling the swirling skirts of tango dancers, Tango & Malbec’s dining room pulsates with red and black hues. Red cloths grace tables and can be removed easily in the event of impromptu bull stampedes, and a dark wooden floor hosts tango dancers on Saturday nights. In keeping with the sultry ambiance, the flicker of flames from the open kitchen’s grill casts the dining room in a warm glow. Over a wood-burning grill, chefs coax flavors from juicy slabs of grass-fed, free-range elk, buffalo, and beef. Once the succulent cuts have soaked up smoky aromas, chefs serve them with piquant chimichurri sauce or atop beds of homemade pastas.
