Authentically Argentine---the parrillada fare is consistently satisfying and the Italian dishes are confusing if you don't know the country's cultural make-up.

THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Baires Grill Restaurant Review

: When we think of Argentine cuisine, the signature parrillada immediately comes to mind. Baire's does offer an amazing parrillada. But it also serves veal tongue and tart, marinated eggplant among perhaps a dozen antipasti. The Argentine barbecue for two comprises garlicky tenderloin, short ribs, flank steak and tender sweetbreads (prepared two ways), and it's brought to the table on a miniature grill (the parrilla) topped with dark blood sausages. The menu also features authentic Italian dishes including pasta, chicken and veal---culinary reminders that Argentina's largest single ethnic component is Italian. Logic and authenticity suggest choosing a robust vino tinto Argentino from a virtual catalog of Argentine wines or, alternatively, a fine Italian selection; both work nicely with the food here. Ambience problems abound, with a large television---which when we visited featured fashion runway shows---perched in each of the room's four corners, and earsplitting technosounds bouncing off the walls. Our expectations are met, though, with that inimitable Argentine way with beef.
