Pampas Argentine Gastropub
    2038 Madison Road, O'Bryonville
    Taking inspiration from his heritage, Ignite Entertainment founder Juan Imeroni opened Pampas Argentine Gastropub, a new eatery that offers an approachable taste of the Argentine countryside in November. The ambiance blends the culture and flavors of two of his other local establishments: Che and Butcher and Barrel. Chef Patrick Bowling — formerly of Jean-Robert's Table and Restaurant L — is at the helm. The menu features meat dishes inspired by the “gaucho” experience in the flatlands of South America as well as salads and charcuterie. They boast a diverse list of cocktails as well, including the simple yet traditional Fernet y Coca.

Nomad
    225 Fairfield Ave., Bellevue
    Bellevue bar and eatery Nomad is opening its doors this September. They will serve craft cocktails and beer, but the main attraction will be the boozy (and virgin) milkshakes and tater tot baskets. The space is meant to bring together the adventurers in life to relax, connect and reflect on their journeys. Eventually a vintage double-decker bus will be parked in the courtyard to provide an eclectic seating option, but for now, they will utilize the space for more breezy, string-lit seating.
