If you ever find yourself wandering around the Lower East Side, somewhere along the corner of Stanton and Suffolk Streets and are in the mood for some Argentinean cuisine you are in the right area. At Azul you can find a broader menu of the cuisines apart from skirt steak, empanadas, and parrillada from the southern part of the Americas located within the Spanish eatery.
While Azul is undergoing a change to bring forth a new experience regarding Argentine cuisines, Villa promises that some dishes that have made Azul popular within the city will remain on the menu since he assures customers that “We are only adding recipes,” and not changing favorites. One of the newest dishes is a braised lamb tongue, rabbit confit served with an apple slaw, with venison carpaccio, and boar with quince sauce which enriches the dish. So, if you want to try out the new Azul you can do so now since the restaurant is participating in NYC Restaurant Week. Take advantage and get a little contemporized taste of Argentina.
