“The same reasons the industry got away from wood-fire cooking — it’s messy, primitive and demanding — are the very reasons we’re excited about it. It’s so naked and such a pure way of cooking, the results need no adornment.” 

—Chef John Manion

When Chef John Manion went looking for someone to bring to life his napkin drawings of the wood-burning cooking system of his dreams, he knew just the person to call: a motorcycle builder. “I went to a bunch of different steel guys,” says Manion, “but no one was as into it as I wanted them to be.” From the looks of the beautiful 12-foot open hearth at the end of the restaurant, which includes two grills, a small wood-burning oven/smoker and three separate chapas (flat-top grills)—one each for vegetables, seafood and meat — as well as various shelves and hooks for hanging and braising ingredients Manion made the right choice. “There’s a reason Argentina is known for its grilling prowess,” says Manion, “and that’s because it’s the best method in the world.”
