More information regarding the opening has been sent over today via press release. If you care:
Corrientes 348, an Argentinian steakhouse launching its first location in the United States, will open late Spring/early Summer in Downtown Dallas. The upscale steakhouse rooted in rich South American culture, is bringing yet another refined dining experience to 1807 Ross Avenue (formerly occupied by Stephan Pyles).
The a la carte menu is shared or family-style dining with an emphasis on high quality cuts of meat, sides and carefully selected wines. Owners Alda Boiani and Sidiclei Demartini, both with 50+ combined years in the restaurant industry, are hoping to create an atmosphere that will emulate the romantic culture found in Buenos Aries – the birthplace of Corrientes 348. They are transforming the 10,000-square-foot space into a stunning restaurant using natural woods, vibrant textures and colors.
Argentinians have a fondness for meat, or rather an ‘asado’ or ‘parrillada.’ Meats are cooked on a parilla, (grill), while attendees enjoy socializing and drinking wine, typically a Malbec. Parrilla culture is largely about patience and enjoying the company they keep. Staying true to their roots, the restaurant will have a dramatic open flame parilla (custom-made in South America) anchoring the main dining room with 20 seats surrounding it.
Seating capacity for the entire space including bar, grill, main dining, two private rooms and outdoor patio will be close to 300.
