When you want to go old school, you won't find anywhere in Palermo better than this venerable steakhouse. This longtime favorite has waiters in bowties and vests who maneuver around the green metal columns that define the farmhouse-style dining room. Among the flavorful, tender cuts of meat, don't pass up the entraña (hanger steak) or the matambrito (pork flank)—the latter is one of the best in Buenos Aires. Although the menu appears fairly pricey, the
portions are massive, and they know it: the steaks are set atop small hibachis to keep them hot. Your best bet is to order one steak for two to share and a platter of the papas rejillas, thick waffle cut chips, and dig in to a classic Argentine meal.
