    oh I mentioned the delicious argentinian steaks but forgot to mention the amazing garlic-parsley fries( my girlfriends fave).

    p.s. this "STEAKHOUSE" is one of my girlfriends top 5 fave restaurants in LA,..oh and shes vegetarian.

      By that, do you mean it's so good even she will eat steak, or that it's her favorite because of the fries?

      I heard another recommendation about this place earlier this week. They said it was fabulous, and fairly reasonably priced (for a nice meal). I guess I'll have to try it out.

          Melrose Ave just a little bit west of Fairfax on the north side of the street. It has been there for at least 20 years.

          It is my favorite steak place in LA. Not that I've been to a ton of steak places, but certainly better than Nick and Stef's. (I've been to Ruth's Chris, albeit in another city, not impressed). At Carlito's Gardel, I always order the rib eye (but then again I love rib eye). I always consider ordering gnocchi or some other homemade pasta, cuz Argentines pride themselves on their pasta as well. But I end up on the rib eye. For me, the test of a steak is when at the first bite, you are thinking "YES! This is it!!!" That's how it is there.

            I remember walking in with no prior knowledge. What a find! It was 8 years ago, but I still remember the empenadas, as well as the most excellent Argentian wine we had. When I returned for a second visit, I couldn't find that wine again, unfortunately.
