Bar Vasquez, Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group's new Argentinian restaurant, is open for business in Harbor East.
The restaurant, named for chef Cindy Wolf's mentor, chef Marcelo Vasquez, replaces Pazo at 1425 Aliceanna St.
Bar Vasquez focuses on wood-fired cooking of local and South American meats. The menu includes empanadas, Argentine pizzas, housemade pastas, steaks and seafood.
Foreman Wolf closed Pazo, the Southern Italian restaurant that formerly occupied the space, in September. The space opened in 2004 as a Spanish restaurant.
Chef Mario Cano Catalan heads the kitchen at Bar Vasquez, and Paul Gier is the general manager.
