In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15)


Buenos Aires, Argentina is home to 48 neighborhoods – each one made of a distinct flavor that cherishes community, tradition, and conversation. These three venerated beliefs can be felt in Porteño (porteño means people from Buenos Aires) in West Chelsea through the decor, food, and hospitality provided. Near The High Line and behemoth Hudson Yards, it is easy to overlook this small Argentine restaurant, especially at night with its dimly lit dining room. However, we strongly recommend lunch or dinner here as the food is as authentic as one can try outside of Argentina. Rustic sumptuous empanadas, decadent pasta, and a robust offering of Argentine wines decorate the menu to offer you a taste of the country from the comfort of your table. Order the alfajores paired with mate ice cream for a novel flavor profile to delight your palate for dessert.

Casa Latina Music Shop
There are few stores that are much more than just neighborhood shops for the Latinx community in terms of significance and place of community. One of these institutions is Casa Latina Music Shop. Found in El Barrio, the cradle of Spanish Manhattan, Casa Latina Music Shop is a place that emanates Latin rhythms and culture from bustling 116th street – an important business corridor. Through the sale of interesting collectibles, instruments found in the music of the records, and books, the store is a living Latinx culture landmark that preserves tradition and honors musical heritage.
