International spots offer alternatives to turkey.
Gaucho Parrilla Argentina in the Strip District is in the early stages of expanding to the building next door at 1605 Penn Ave., manager Anthony Falcon confirmed.
The popular restaurant will nearly double the size of its dining room to include more countertop seating as well as tables and chairs in the front room. The restaurant will build a lounge in the back of the building once it secures a liquor license.
Mr. Falcon said the closing on the building next door will be in the next few weeks. The build-out, designed by Desmone & Associates Architects, will take four months or so. It will also include an expanded kitchen, where currently, chef Curt Diedrich, cooks over a wood-burning grill.
