Who we ARE

We are two Argentine chefs passionate about sharing Argentina’s flavors and foods with you and yours. The “asado” is a traditional South American barbecue consisting of grilled meats – including beef, pork, chicken, chorizo, and morcilla – all cooked over an open wood grill. In our culture, the asado is not only about the grill but it’s known as a social event – from family meal on Sunday’s to birthday parties, office parties, your most private events and everything in between. As two Argentine’s with extended family and businesses throughout the DMV, we want to bring the joy of the asado to you.
