THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gaucho Grill Restaurant Review

: One of the last in a once-ubiquitous chain, this restaurant turns out rather respectable Argentine cuisine at reasonable prices, which is what made these restaurants attractive in the first place. Don't miss the little iron skillet full of melted cheese and spices known as "provoleta" for an appetizer, or consider "mollejas" (garlicky grilled sweetbreads, a Buenos Aires fave). There are several burgers, sandwiches and pastas, as well as tasty fish and chicken specialties, but as everyone knows, Argentines excel at steak and beef. The best way to experience the beef is the "parrillada" (mixed grill), which comfortably fills three hungry guests, and includes skirt steak, short ribs and chorizo. Finish with flan or crêpes with dulce de leche. There’s a decent selection of Argentine wines available, too. With its generous use of stone and wood, this is an inviting, casual spot in a neighborhood with many choices.
