A meatcentric meal is your best bet at this dimly lit Argentine steakhouse. Though starters like an off-tasting tuna carpaccio should be avoided, the main event—grass-fed beef—very nearly compensates. Strip, rib eye and skirt steaks arrive pink and marbled, accompanied by a piquant chimichurri sauce and a mound of creamy mashed potatoes or crisp fries, great for soaking up the meaty juices. Crêpes stuffed with dulce de leche make for a rich, satisfying dessert. If you find yourself in on the Upper East Side craving steak, consider this a worthwhile option—but don’t go out of your way.
