Fighting Fire With Fire

Fighting Fire with Fire is an event to raise funds to assist people and their communities directly affected by the fires.

About this Event

We are all deeply saddened and shocked by the devastating and tragic fires currently ravaging our country. It’s with great disbelief that we even begin to imagine the hardship these communities are going through having lost their homes, land, livestock and at worst, family members.

In true Porteño style, we’re Fighting Fire with Fire, hosting a feast at our original Cleveland Street event space. As with many restaurants, we have an incredibly close affiliation with our land, and the bounty it provides us in the food we are able to serve you. These fires have affected many of our suppliers, their friends, their family, their communities, all those whom help us bring food to your table each night.

We’re getting everyone together for one last Hoorah. Adan, Ben and Elvis along with their team of chefs on the Asado and Parilla. Joe, Sarah, Rachael and Adam keeping the drinks flowing.

So please assist in raising funds by joining us for one of the last dinners at our iconic Cleveland Street Location. ALL proceeds will go to Charities supporting those whom need it most.

Introducing Our New Wine Cup

Many cultures have a tradition of special event drinks in ceramics. Think Japan and sake, China and huangjiu, Mexico and mezcal, and then there was the Romans who drank their wine out of terracotta goblets. For some time now we’ve been having an end of week tipple – wine and G&Ts – out of our latte cups and found that rather than detracting from the taste and experience, the tactile and thermal properties of porcelain…
