Hi we are Andrea and Leo . We come from the country , that we know all about empanadas. Argentina not only is the gate to the Antarctic , it is the country of the Malbec wines , steak, football the real one , the pope’s homeland , and we got the largest European immigration after WW2. All this was combined in a pot , that turned into the our nation , and there we were born into a country full of flavors , passions ,fright and immigrant blood to top it off .
We often get asked why did you leave everything and came here ? The answer is simple , we wanted a better future for our daughter . You might ask also why doesn’t Argentina have that future for her ? I could go on forever , but the short answer is it can take up to 50 years to fix a country like that , that’s a short period of time for a country, but that can be a lifetime for a person .
We moved in 2000 , by then my daughter was only 11 years old . Just the 3 of us packed our whole lives in only 6 suitcases. We brought with us our culture , but also the map to our dreams . Here we got immersed into the culture, got to taste new flavors , new kind of football .
We started our dream on our own 5 yard line , like football . We decided to do everything possible to reach that goal line , any job opportunities we took them we never gave up . Our journey took us from California , Utah to finally Colorado .
Colorado was our home away from home . The love for the mountains , snow and Ski got us one day to a commercial center in Silverthorne , that’s where we saw a space that said “Space for Lease “. Next thing we did we decided to refinance our home , and open the restaurant. We decided to do what we know what to do and we love to do .
Plus like I said before we come from the place that knows empanadas the best . We wanted to share with everyone those moments, because they best moments ares with friends and family sharing good meal and chatting around the table .
