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.

Libertador is not just an Argentinian steak house. They have a very varied menu and serve generous portions and decent prices. Some starters worth trying are the grilled provolone cheese with beefsteak tomatoes, the shrimp in garlic with white wine, lemon juice, and butter, and the onion and mozzarella cheese empanadas. I do have to mention the steak though. All the beef is grass fed, free range, and served with a delicious chinchurri sauce. Some of your choices are rib eye, skirt, and New York strip steak. Vegetarians fear not, Libertador has lots of salads and pasta that will keep you satisfied.
