“Barra del Gusto” is Bar Sótano’s Chef’s Counter Experience

On Valentines Day, our newest jewel, Bar Sótano—our smallest venue—will premiere an even smaller, more special experience for six guests.

At the Barra Del Gusto—the chefs’ tasting counter—guests will enjoy five tasting courses prepared just for that evening by Chef Rishi Manoj Kumar and his team. Think: modern Mexican expression of Japan’s omakase tradition.

Each course will be carefully paired with a cocktail tasting from the acclaimed mixology team of Lanie Bayless and Roger Landes.

After its V-Day debut, Barra del Gusto will be only available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The Proxi-Bar Sótano Mashup is Here!

Our latest mashup brings the global street food flavors of Proxi to Bar Sótano’s Mexican market-inspired basement bar.

For one night only on March 4, we’re offering a special menu featuring our favorite dishes from the Proxi and Sótano kitchens, plus a few never-before-seen collaborative dishes from chefs Andrew Zimmerman and Sótano’s Rishi Manoj Kumar. 

Behind the bar, Proxi’s Jess Sandberg and Sótano’s Lanie Bayless will weave the flavors of their world travels into unique cocktails, spotlighting drinks from their renowned bars and collaborating on a few brand new ones, too. 

We just can’t wait.
