El Trapiche Review
It's hard to believe this bare, unadorned space was "refurbished" a few years ago. Luckily the lack of design aesthetic doesn't translate to the plates, which, while not fancy, serve up hearty portions of Argentine grilled and fried dishes and a smattering of Spanish specialties. At lunch it's packed with Palermo office workers, at dinner with a mix of locals and tourists, all tucking into the well-seasoned and properly cooked steaks and chops. Don't miss the boquerones as an appetizer; the entraña, or hanger steak, particularly accompanied by the excellent papas a la crema, are a don't-miss main course to share for two. Note: while it may look slightly pricey at first glance, most of the steak portions easily serve more than one person. There are also good combinations on the well-priced prix-fixe lunch options.
