      D'accordo! (I agree!) I assume that it is in TX?

        I believe it's in Massachusetts. An Argentinian restaurant.

      3. Why not share the ingredient list?

          I have no idea what is dried and what is fresh on this list; this is the list was given:
          garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, oregano, bay leaf, red wine vinegar, olive oil, paprika.
          I've done a little research on my own, and discovered that the sauce is almost certainly a variant of chimichurri, made red by the addition of paprika. I will get the proportions for various Argentinian and Latin American cookbooks.
