If you’re ever trying to get into Tango Sur and the wait is two hours, consider calling an audible and heading to Bodega Sur next door. It’s not BYOB, so you’re going to have to ditch the wine bottle you brought with you. But since they have a full bar, that just means you can drink a mojito with the same delicious Argentine steak that made Tango Sur a neighborhood destination. They’re open for lunch and brunch every day, plus they have a retail section with plenty of South American wine bottles to go.
