Hi, anyone have a recommendation for a restaurant with a good flank steak chimichurri?

    I made some at home Sunday night. I should have invited you.
    My recipe for the chimi is not really Argentinian, but it seems to work and I got a great couple of bunches of Parsley at the farmers market on Saturday so that's how it went.

      The carne asada at Angela's Cafe is a grilled sirloin done with a decent chimichurri, and comes with a great side of rajas con crema.

        Had this last night at Angela's - this dish along with everything else was quite good. The small guac came in the mortar dish (there was a past debate about that) - good and limey and salty. DC's chicken was outstanding - huge piece of boneless white meat - I know there have been crits (and I have personally experienced) saying the meats can be overcooked at times, but this was perfect, and fork tender. A few people there, but we were the only ones when we arrived ~7pm on a Wed. night. Nice re-design on the signage outside tells me not to worry...

        Abe and Louies and their sister restaurant The Coach Grille in Wayland offer they steaks with a 4 or 5 different sauce condiments. I've had the Chimichurri and it was very good. I would assume one could also get the Chimi sauce at lunch or brunch (which would offer a more reasonable price tag !)

          I haven't been yet (it's on the long list of go-tos)....but maybe someone else has tried the Argentinian restaurant, Tango? It's on Mass Ave in Arlington.

            It's the only thing I've found acceptable on the menu of the Border Cafe in Harvard Square, but their chimichurri steak is actually quite good.

              I have tried it at Tango, and it is very good, though I'm sensing a downhill alert here (a few people I know have said the place isn't as good as it once was).
