Every traveler to Buenos Aires wants to know one thing- where is the best place to have a steak? Here’s a short list of my favorites to point you in the right direction…
Steaks by Luis:
Here at The Reserve we rent out our space to a very talented Asador (or grillman) named Luis. Born in raised in Argentina, Luis grew up making barbecues and says he was in charge of his first parilla (grill) at the young age of 11. At this closed-door style dinner you will try probably the best cut of Bife de Chorizo (New York Strip Steak) of your life. And that’s only after trying many other exciting Argentine specialties such as provoleta (grilled cheese), chorizo (sausage) morcilla (blood sausage), and molleja (sweetbreads). Luis starts of the night with a traditional antipasta called a picada, with meats and cheese and a glass of bubbly. And then moves on to serve a typical argentine ensalada mixta (mixed salad), the grilled starters, that incredible steak and finally a melt in your mouth surprise dessert. My favorite part is that all the courses are served with a glass of Anuva’s very own boutique wines! Steaks by Luis is definitely a must for those who love meat and are curious to know all the ins and outs of a traditional argentine barbecue.
My family just came to visit and in two weeks we went to this steakhouse 3 times. Yes, that’s how good it is. From the warm bread rolls at the beginning to the incredible tiramisu at the end, every part of the dining experience was superb. Their fresca salad with blue cheese and pear was a hit with my family, and we all decided the best cuts were the Bife de Lomo and the Ojo de Bife. Mmmm so delicious! Plus for those who enjoy a steak much more with a glass of malbec, they have a great wine list as well.
In the heart of Palermo Hollywood, this steakhouse has a great atmosphere and great food. The portions are large so don’t be afraid to share! I recommend getting a side of mashed potatoes with the bife de lomo, it makes for a stellar accompaniment. While you are in the neighborhood take the time to walk around and check out the nightlife afterward. There are some excellent bars to be stumbled upon.
If you have any other recommendations for the best steaks in Buenos Aires please feel free to comment! I tend to stick around Palermo Hollywood/Soho, which is why my recommendations are limited to this area. But I’m always up to try something new.
Now go out and get yourselves one of those delicious grass-fed steaks!
