Looking for Great Steak - Argentinean?
My mom is coming into the city for her birthday this evening and I am looking for a restaurant that has a great steak, but is NOT a steakhouse. I had been thinking that Buenos Aires Restaurant in the EV would be great (they have a KILLER steak,) but it's not the nicest atmosphere for the food/money. (Personally, I recommend everyone go there for incredible Argentinean food - just not if you are with someone who likes a fancier feel restaurant for a big occasion)
I also have liked Rue 57 quite a bit, and even City Crab on Park Ave S...
Any suggestions of places within relative proximity to the East Side?
513 E 6th St, New York, NY 10009
60 W 57th St Frnt 1, New York, NY 10019
El Almicen in Williamsburg has some of the best Argentine fare that I've had outside of Argentina. Great skirt steak with tasty chimichurri and thick-cut fries for $18. Also some great ceviches and wines.
Perhaps someone might be able to pipe up on the Argentine restaurants on the UES. There are a number on First Avenue that might be appropriate for you.
