    Had dinner there Friday evening and while I am still missing Drago I enjoyed my meal. Empanadas were good, both chicken and beef. Skirt steak was excellent, cooked to a perfect medium rare.

    My only complaint was the size of the pours. $12 for a Ketel on the rocks and a little skimpy. Nice ambiance and excellent service. Everyone seems to be trying hard and the restaurant was 80% full.

    Let us know how the lunch service is.

      Lunch was nice.
      Empanada's were absolutely "on point" as Guy Fieri would say. So was the beef carpaccio.
      Provoleta was awesome with some nice red peppers underneath.
      3 of my companions had the skirt steak, and all 3 were raving about it.
      I had a Milanese Steak Sandwich that was a monster, tought to eat, but nice flavor.

      Agree that they are earnest and there to please. Fairly expensive.
