And Mendoza, the country’s world-class winegrowing region, has been dubbed “the new Napa Valley.”

We enjoyed lunch at the Firehouse Restaurant in Johnson City with our friends Jennifer and Brenda. The savory smell of BBQ fills the air when you enter, and the staff is exceptional.

The restaurants name is fitting because it is house in a actual Fire House that was originally built in 1930, served the town as the Walnut Street Fire Hall until 1976.
