Customer Spotlight – Malbec Argentinean Cuisine

Authenticity, simplicity and quality are the pillars on which Malbec Argentinean Cuisine was built. Malbec opened its first location on Green Street in Pasadena in March 2008 and became known for its great food and selection of South American wines. Malbec now has three additional locations in Santa Monica, Toluca Lake and Eagle Rock.

Executive Chef and Partner Pablo Alcorta was trained in Argentina where he opened and operated several restaurants before moving to Los Angeles 20 years ago. This restaurant remains true to his vision while staying current with evolving Argentinian cuisine.

Offering an abundant selection of signature grilled meats and fish prepared on a genuine Argentinean grill, Malbec offers guests an authentic taste of Argentina. Everything is handmade including the salads, pastas and desserts. As expected for an Argentinian restaurant, beef is always a popular choice. But at Malbec, it’s the quality of the ingredients that makes these dishes so exceptional. All steaks are aged between 21 and 28 days. The all-natural Angus prime New York steak is a favorite with customers and employees alike.

Ensuring a high-quality experience for guests is not enough; the team works diligently to improve its menu and service and stay on the cutting edge. Part of their commitment to quality is relying on California Linen Services for spotless table and kitchen linens since opening their doors.

The Malbec team explained, “We’ve never worked with another linen company. They really get the small business side of things. The California Linen team, especially Mario, Linda and Maria are always there to help with any questions or special requests.”

When asked about their experience working with California Linen Services, Partner Luciano Alcorto went on to say, “We are lucky to have California Linen as a vendor. The restaurant business requires so much attention to detail in so many different areas. But having California Linen brings us peace of mind, because they take care of their customers’ needs.”
