Fodor's Expert Review La Cabrera
Spanish may actually be the least common language spoken at this touristy place, but that doesn't mean it's not a great steak house. Generally big enough to share, huge slabs of meat are seasoned, seared, and cooked to perfection and accompanied by a variety of condiments. There's also an array of "side dishes," a touch gimmicky, but tasty, ranging from different vegetable purees and pickles. The service is impeccable—it has to be with the international crowd it attracts. Provoletas (gooey, slightly crispy grilled cheese slabs) are a must to start, either the standard cow or the much touted goat versions. The exact same menu is served down the block at La Cabrera Norte, at 5127 Cabrera, a location that was opened just to handle the overflow. While reservations are accepted, they're rarely honored, so expect to stand in line during prime dinner hours.
