Argentine steak house from the owners of Ravenswood's defunct Artango Bistro.

Our Review

The tango has come a long way since its working-class origins in the late 19th century—so much so that now there's an honest-to-God milonga/Argentine steak house plopped down on the stroller lanes of Lincoln Square. It comes from Ukrainian-born tango instructor Maria Alferov and her Argentine husband, Sebastian Casanova, who used to run the late Artango Bistro in Ravenswood, a place where you could get a rib eye, take a tango lesson, or host your wedding, but not anywhere you could buy a cocktail. Now the couple has installed themselves, as well as a bar and a dance floor, in the much larger space that once housed the late Trattoria Trullo. They've also installed virtually the same menu of vaguely Italian-influenced Argentine and pan-South American standards, from grilled steaks and ceviches to empanadas and paella to griddled Provoleta cheese. One would expect the kitchen to execute dishes like these with the same passion as the dancers execute their ganchos and lustradas. Read the full review >>
