We promise to get by the family-owned Buenos Aires Grill and Cafe, an Argentinian eatery at 614 President Clinton Ave., as soon as possible for a review. But first some information:
The Bruzatori family, Little Rock residents for 14 years, are serving up their family recipes of grilled meats, empanadas, Graciela’s chimichurri (named for the matriarch, Graciela Bruzatori) and other dishes reflective of their Argentinian-Italian heritage. Head cook is Paul Hohnbaum.
Daughter Flo Bruzatori said the restaurant spent a month and a half training the kitchen in the Argentinian style of grilling. Buenos Aires seats 96 inside, including at the bar, and 30 to 40 outside on the patio, which fronts Clinton Avenue. It’s a good mix with Club 27, where the Little Rock Salsa Club teaches salsa, merengue and other Latin moves on Tuesday and Friday nights and which shares the building with Buenos Aires Grill.
Hours are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; lunch will be introduced in April.
