Azul: Great Vibe

BY Lisa Lindblad

March 15, 2011

I just celebrated a birthday and chose, as the dinner venue for my group of 8 friends, a favorite of mine, LES restaurant Azul.

I first came across Azul, located on Stanton and Suffolk, one sultry summer day.  A square room, open to the two street fronts, this informal, tasty, moderately priced Argentinian transplant is a little bit of heaven.  Steaks a la parilla, empanadas and croquetas, solid red wines and a nice selection of Torrontes, the service is as friendly as the food.  And nothing is more divine, on that sultry summer New York day, than sitting over a long lunch with the sun slanting in on a table crowded with glasses, plates and demitasse cups.
