Village Voice's Description
The East Village doesn't have its own steakhouse, but this parrilla will do. Sit in the tented rear patio at Buenos Aires and go right to the meats; rather than pastas or meal-size salads; for your main course. The choice devolves to two Argentine faves, skirt steak and short ribs, both arriving char-grilled and bloody in the middle. While the beef is free-range and wonderful, avoid the mashed potatoes (what, no butter?) in favor of the excellent fries, which still need lots of salt. Best starters: house-made chorizo and blood sausage, and the cold stuffed veal-breast roll called matambre ("kill hunger").
Tips from foursquare
Try the sweetbreads. Amazing!
Instead of two steaks which means carrying leftovers I usually get the 16 ounce strip with mashed potatoes Then spilt it. Get the chimichurri sauce. the Carmel dessert. Amazing
The Entrania (skirt steak) is great!!!
The bottom of the tables are fuzzy
bone-in rib eye. ftw.
