ARTANGO BAR AND STEAKHOUSE NOW OPEN

ArtagoCollage

The new 180-seat Artango Bar & Steakhouse  brings authentic Argentine cuisine, 1920s cocktails, tango dancing and a peek into the golden age of Buenos Aires to Chicago’s dining scene.

Owned by the husband/wife team of Tango pro Maria Alferov, a Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago alum, and Buenos Aires-born artist Sebastian Casanova, who’s designed and handcrafted the interior.  In 2013, the couple opened their popular 80-seat Argentine hot-spot, Artango Bistro, in Ravenswood. Based on its success, the demand for more seating, more space for dancing, the duo decided to move to a larger, nearby location. Tweaking their original concept, Artango Bar & Steakhouse is inspired by the 1920s halcyon days of Buenos Aires, when the increasingly cosmopolitan city was teeming with nightlife, restaurants, Tango salons and opera houses, and soon dubbed “the Paris of south.”

The menu  features flavorful Argentine cuisine, focused on parrilla-grilled steaks, meats and seafood. Highlights begin with a line-up of Ceviches, along with Empanadas with fillings like Taleggio cheese and grapes, and Picada — a selection of cold cuts, cheeses, olives, fig jam, toast. Signature entrees include Churrasco de Chorizo — Prime, spiral cut New York strip steak, marinated in garlic, parsley, olive oil, Ojo de Bife — Prime, rib-eye steak, delicately marbleized for exceptional tenderness,  Paella del Sur — langoustine, scallops, calamari, shrimp, saffron rice, and Cordero Patagonico lamb chops, creamy polenta, kale, truffle oil.

Artango Bar & Steakhouse, 4747 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago.
