ISO of best juicy ribeye steak chimchurri in LA

Hi there,

My BF and I literally salivate when we think of this amazing grilled ribeye w/chimichurri sauce we had in, believe it or not, a Latin fusion restaurant in Big Bear back in Jan.

We're craving another fix and were wondering where we could find it in LA.

Anxiously awaiting replies... :)

    Carlitos Gardel on Melrose - very good steak, excellent chimichurri and do not miss the garlic fries!. Not cheap, but very worth it! And a super wine selection.

      The best chimichurri in town, possibly in the country, is oddly enough at Cut, the Wolfgang Puck steakhouse in the Beverly Wilshire - the opening manager was a proud porteno, and pushed century-old Argentine cookbooks on Lee Hefter. Pair it with a medium-rare Japanese wagyu ribeye and you pretty much have chimichurri satori, although not altogether cheaply...

          I'm not sure I've ever had bad chimichurri (I've certainly had bad steak, though). You can get a fix at Gaucho Grill ... not the best steaks, but certainly decent, and you get lots of Chimichurri to slather on to your bread! =)

            Hmm, thanks Hounds! I'm scheduling a chimichurri dinner for this weekend. :)
