NOLA Beer and Chicken Y'all!

Well, I imagine that photo got your attention? If not, you are dead inside (or vegetarian). When fried chicken is done to absolute perfection, you have to bow down. NOLA Gastropub has nailed it!

NOLA is chef, Liza Puglia and her boyfriend brew master, Francisco Terrin of Bröeders brew fame. I visited them in the spanking new Palermo restaurant last week. They have perfected simplicity with Liza's New Orleans style home cooking and Francisco's house crafted beer. The crispy friend chicken is off the charts good (with the XXX sauce, if you are missing some spice in your life) and happy hour pints for $25 pesos, daily from 5-8pm. Needless to say, NOLA has been a hit since their doors opened a few weeks ago.

For this shoot, I used natural window light with my amazing new Fuji XT1 and wide 14mm prime lens for most of the interior shots. For the food photos, I bounced a speed light and used my Nikon D600 with a 24-70mm lens. I reduced the shutter speed for these shots as well to allow some ambient light. My boyfriend, Hernan was my hand model ;) Tough job, friends!

If you live in Buenos Aires, get your butt over to NOLA at Gorriti 4389. Here's a link to a past NOLA event I covered a few years back.

*Update: NOLA's Happy Hour prices are now $30pesos/pint. Amazing deal!
