Named for a waterfront neighborhood in Buenos Aires that was home to generations of newly arrived Italian immigrants, this handsome restaurant is at the gateway to an area filling up with trendy boutiques, including a Harley-Davidson showroom. Like the cooking in Buenos Aires, the menu here marries the traditional Argentine love of beef—and lots of it—with traditional Italian recipes and techniques. A long list of sizable steaks is crowned by the parrillada,
a feast of beef cuts, sausage, sweetbreads, and chicken, meant to be shared by at least two people. The sliced tomatoes in a creamy Roquefort sauce are the perfect way to start the meal. If you're not in the mood for beef, try the unusual "Bombonera" pizza with prosciutto, heart of palm, and olives.
