A Ninth Avenue favorite with the pre- and post-theater crowd, this cozy steakhouse specializes in well-seasoned beef and the tangy, eponymous sauce that accompanies it. The Argentinian diet has relied on meat since well before the Atkins craze, so it’s no wonder the restaurant imports their prime, marbled Angus and chewy, flavorful short ribs from the homeland. The South American country is also known for its Italian heritage, so vegetarians can opt for homemade raviolis and daily pasta specials. Since prices are a fraction of midtown’s classic steakhouses, expect a crowd during peak hours; this small, homey room only has about a dozen tables.Recommended Dishes
