Bar Vasquez pays homage to Chef Cindy Wolf’s mentor, Chef Marcelo Vasquez, originally from Argentina. The restaurant celebrates the vibrancy and energy of Buenos Aires and reflects the Argentine love of meat and seasonal ingredients of the Americas in the menu. Surround yourself with the whim of the bar and lounge, or the romance and business of the formal dining room upstairs. Each night, live music is performed by local musicians that keeps a crackle of energy in the space.
Downstairs the bar and lounge provide a more relaxed and easy environment fit for enjoying drinks and snacks to live music. Upstairs, the second floor is a more intimate scene of white tablecloths, silver candlesticks, Rosenthal china, and formal service. Diners will appreciate a view of the energy downstairs from a more private location. Tucked in the corner of the upper mezzanine is a 10-seat whiskey bar.
As for the wines, co-owner and Wine Director of all the Foreman Wolf restaurants, Tony Foreman, tasted over 1500 Argentinian wines alone to make selections for Bar Vasquez’s wine list. The wine cellar will be filled with mostly Argentinian wines and a few South American varietals. “It is my goal to have 100 wines that are under a $100 that are completely brilliant. It is exciting what you can find on our wine list—fun, bodacious, just simply great wines at all price points. Best of all, guests can enjoy live performances from passionate, talented musicians and artists that will keep a crackle of energy in the space that doesn’t come about any other way,” says Foreman. Vasquez will be open for dinner six days a week with live performances every night.
