0 Love It
This 60-seat Argentine establishment is a no-holds-barred parrillada (grilled-meat specialist). It showcases sharable entrañas (skirt steaks) and churrascos (grilled rib eyes) served on wooden boards with house-made chimichurri or salsa criolla sauce. Along with the carne options, there are panko-crusted avocado fries, spinach-cheese empanadas and chipotle-and-cotija-slathered grilled corn. Sip a glass of Mendozan wine or a pint of Quilmes at the dark-wood bar. Mismatched wicker chairs, vintage grocery bins and old kerosene lanterns evoke the restaurant's namesake, a South American general store.
