The staff likes to point out that everything in the restaurant is made in Argentina, just like the name suggests. Certainly the twig-hewn art, leather chairs, and the roaring flame of a parrilla transport diners to a Patagonian estancia. Giant cream-colored lanterns inject the smart design sense of Buenos Aires, and a wall tapestry celebrates almost everything that’s great about the South American country. Anything not reflected in the décor is well-represented on the menu, from grass-fed beef to Quilmes beer. Pretend to be a “porteño” (Buenos Aires native) by starting with flaky baked empanadas stuffed with goat cheese, corn, or ground beef, or the alluring sweet sausage, drizzled with chimichurri, the homeland’s signature condiment of parsley and oil. Steaks are turned out with an expertise rarely found outside the Pampas. Homemade pastas allude to the country’s ties with Italy. Desserts built around dulce de leche are the surest picks for an authentic ending.Prix-Fixe Lunch
