#TBT - Bob Long was a busser at the original El Gaucho. A loyal member of the El Gaucho family, he was hired as a wine captain when Paul reopened El Gaucho. In this painting he is preparing our famous tableside Bananas Foster for Paul’s wife, Gail. #Gaucho20

#TBT - Described as a “knock out,” Paul claims this Anniversary painting as his favorite. It captures the complete essence of El Gaucho: personalized, elegant, old-school, tableside service. This is the hallmark of El Gaucho’s legacy. The painting was intended for women to picture themselves as a princess and the center of attention while dining at El Gaucho, perfectly enveloped by the setting. The men are all historical El Gaucho characters: Paul Mackay, Dave Williams, Karl Reimann, Jon Sheard, and Michael Kaminski. #Gaucho20
