This place is always packed, because its GREAT, but with that said, they bend over backwards to get u in the door, and once there u feel special. The staff make u feel at home and welcome. There is NOTHING pretentious about this place, even though for my money it serves the best steak in NYC. Not only is it delicious but its organic, grass fed beef from Cow heaven Uruguay, a country which was ranked as the 3rd cleanest on earth in 2006. Ive been here 15 times and each time is just as good as the last, they are consistent, and focus on quality. Ive eaten in many steakhouses including Peter luger, Smith Wollensky, Gallaghers...I can tell u without a doubt Buenos Aires is a MUCH better value, better food, better atmosphere...simply superior!! \r
The owner along with his wife are there and oversee a very efficient and professional operation, as well as taking a sincere interest in their clients; as witnessed by the fact that 1/2 the clients treat them as family with all the smiles and hugs that are exchanged.\r
I highly recommend it and soon plan on going back for my 16th time. Forget the other steakhouses, Save yourself some money and a bad digestion, come to Buenos Aires u will be very happy u did...BA is where its AT!\r
PS- Try the Tannat Don Diva it is AMAZING with beef,\r
I cant recommend 1 dish without recommending everything because everything is excellent, but I would suggest saving a bit of room for any of the delicious desserts served with Dulce de leche. Most americans have eaten a steak before but few have had dulce de leche.
Pros: Everything, wine, beef, empanadas, potato salad, chimichuri
