Jackson Heights harbors several rustically elegant Argentinean steakhouses with carved-wood accents and tango overhead and La Cabaña Argentina takes just pride in its classic mixed grill. Here, the menu is properly heaped with cooked-to-order skirt steak, rib steak, sweetbreads, chorizo, and blood sausage. Clearly, this gracious little place and its chatty waiters aim to please. La Cabaña also finesses two Argentinian and American favorites: pasta and pizza. The pasta menu invites you to mix and match noodles with sauces—say, linguine with Bolognese or gnocchi with Alfredo, while the mozzarella-lavished, medium-sized pizzas are baked in the wood-burning brick oven which takes credit for the crisp, flavorful empanadas as well.Recommended Dishes
