I like a good steak, but my husband can do that at home. So when he said he wanted steak for Father's Day in NYC, I wanted to find a place that would make us both happy. This was it! The tapas (the octopus, the Serrano ham, the Spanish anchovies) were amazingly tasty! Perfect for sharing between two people. Then the ribeye steak came. It was fantastic. Good chat, and seasoned in a way we wouldn't have done ourselves. The waitstaff was excellent and personal and the decor was casual and comfortable. This place was everything I had hoped for!
The place is in the Lower East Side and it is a bi thard to reach from Midtwon, but worth it. Iordered the empanadas and they were AWESOME, just lik ein Argentina. The churrasco was excellent too, with chimichurri and salsa criolla, and a large side of home frenh fries done as in Argentina. Wine is reasonably priced. Definitely a gem.
This place was buzzing on a Saturday night! And so noisy. The service was affected by the crowding, but the food was all tasty, especially the steaks. Friends enjoyed fish and chicken too. This restaurant is pricey though not at all fancy with tables crowded together. The octopus appetizer was delicious at $17 and the anchovies were a tiny tapas at around $5. Grass-fed Steaks range about $36-46. The staff is courteous, but overworked by the popularity of this place. It's authentic Argentinian with empanadas.
