Come October, the industrial-machine-shop-turned-fine dining den that sits at the corner of Aliceanna and Spring streets will shed its Sicilian style in favor of South American flair.
After operating Pazo for the last 12 years, Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group has decided to rebrand the space as Bar Vasquez—an Argentinian concept featuring authentic cuisine, next-level cocktails, and live music. Pazo’s last day of service will be September 17.
Co-owner Tony Foreman—who also manages Charleston, Cinghiale, Johnny’s, and Petit Louis alongside James Beard-nominated chef Cindy Wolf—says that the new concept is meant to serve as an homage to the late Marcelo Vasquez, Wolf’s Argentinian-born mentor.
“Argentina is a big deal to both of us,” Foreman says. “It’s been a part of Cindy’s cooking career from the beginning. Going back and forth to taste the wine, I gained affection for the people, the culture, and the approach to food.”
