Estancia 460 will expand next door with a more casual bar

Estancia 460, the Argentinian-Italian restaurant opened by local resident Stacey Sosa (with her then-husband) in 1995 and now managed by her son Elias, will take the space next door and convert it into what sounds like a cool, casual lounge. In fact, it sounds like just the kind of place the neighborhood will enjoy. CB1 gave its blessing last month.

The space was most recently The Greek; that closed during the pandemic and owner Tom Galis moved the operation to his other venue, Greca on Washington. Before that it was Turks & Frogs. It’s 1500 square feet and currently buried under the sidewalk bridge there for the hotel being built on the corner, but it’s a sweet space.

The plan is to have a draft beer selection, cocktails and a limited menu to create a low-key, relaxed setting for the 28-to-65-year-old set. (Phew! Made it in.) As Elias said, they hope to attract their current regulars, only without their kids. Hours will be 4 to midnight on the weekdays, 4 to 1a on the weekends.

  6. Great news! I wish them much success. Can’t wait for it to open.

  7. I fully support this expansion and wish them the best. I only hope they can do something about the acoustics un that space. It was impossible to have a conversation in The Greek even though the food was great.
