DINNER AND TANGO AT ARTANGO BISTRO

 

ArtangoWeb

Tuesdays and Wednesdays Artango Bistro presents a $25 prix fixe dinner teamed with Tango.  In addition to a complete menu of Argentine, Peruvian, and other South American cuisine, Artango will offer a special 3-course Tango Dinner, including appetizer, choice of entree, and dessert, served indoors or on their sidewalk patio. As a BYOB, Artango encourages guests to bring their favorite wine to enjoy with dinner. From 7:30 to 8 Tuesdays, and 8 to 8:30 Wednesdays, all are welcome to enjoy a free Intro to Argentine Tango group dance lesson as well.

Discretely tucked off-the-beaten-path, in a quiet street-level nook of Chicago’s century-old landmark Deagan Building, the 75-seat bistro has quietly become the epicenter for Argentine Tango and authentic South American cuisine since opening last.
