Scout Notes: Azul opened its doors on Stanton in the somber days after September 11, making a gift of its warm, easy Argentine atmosphere. The bistro's rustic brick, fold-back doors, and papered ceilings (look closely, they're old South American advertisements) feel plucked from a corner of Buenos Aires: at first glance, you can tell these tables were built for long, leisurely meals and making fast friends with strangers. The whole endeavor gets an assist from a menu that showcases the very best in Argentinian food & wine; owner Fernando Dallorso has curated an outstanding selection of asado, entrees, and bottles sourced from across his homeland. You can stop by for a quick glass and a set of small plates, of course, but the better thing is to bring a crowd and settle in for the full Azul adventure. Start with Saltena-style empanadas and ceviche, open some Syrah, then await the parrillada, a sizzling platter of ribs, chops, and sausages. It's not just a culinary centerpiece, it's also one of the city's best conversation starters.
