Three restaurant-industry veterans have opened an Argentine empanadería in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge: a chef who worked at La Grenouille and La Silhouette; the former GM of Salumeria Rosi; and her husband, who ran a joint in Buenos Aires long enough to develop a taste for these baked stuffed pastries. Each empanada has its own repulgue, or pastry-fold pattern, so they’re easy to ID. Of the various old- and new-school styles, we’re partial to the soup-in-hand-pie-form French Onion Fugazetta, the red-wine-braised Beef Burgundy, and the Chicken Curry. For dessert, try the sweet-tart Guava Cheesecake version with Toby’s Estate cold-brewed coffee on tap.

Recommended Dishes
