Patriarch “El Tata,” his gracious son Gaspar and a troop of cousins, nephews and longtime waiters affectionately tend to this equine-themed Argentine meatery (the name means “riding whip”). Flaky house-made empanadas are ace appetizers, but the main attraction is the rich, expertly flamed beef. Go for lusciously marbled entraña (skirt steak) or the sky-high parrillada—a mixed grill of heart-stopping delights like snappy sausages and liver-stuffed tripe. A bottle of malbec adds gusto to this gaucho repast.
