"Want a side of fun with that steak? Porteño is for you. Smoke; meat; salt; fire; beers; rock'n'roll and a tonne of Brylcreem all mingle in pursuit of the ultimate good time."
"In the kitchen, co-chefs/best mates Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz work the grills, so quoiffed and tattooed they look like they've just stepped out of an especially stylish 1950s prison kitchen. Maitre d' Sarah Doyle runs the floor in platinum pin curls. Sommelier/co-owner Joe Valore could easily take you for a spin around the dance floor while pouring you a glass of wine. They all want you to have a blast.
Call it Rockabilly Bar and Grill. Call it the new lounge room of the cream of Sydney hospitality. Call it the best South American restaurant Sydney's ever seen."

"Elvis Abrahanowicz and Ben Milgate have Sydney eating out of the palms of their hands. Bodega hasn't stopped buzzing since it opened in 2006 and last week they revealed their ambitious second effort, Porteño. From the 100 year old tiles to the antiquated circular pit used for the traditional Asado grill, they've imported so much of Argentina, the Cleveland Street site should have that embassy status of occupying foreign soil. Plus, the place is huge and kind of ambassadorial, like an old world club."
