Bueno Aires in New York

After walking around a lot, I ended up having dinner at Buenos Aires, you guessed it an Argentinian restaurant. All the tables were full, the soccer game was playing on the two plasmas and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meat dishes. Forty minutes later I had a table, a bottle of wine and a hand-cut meat empanada. Another appetizer worth mentioning is the Provoleta Argentina which is grilled provolone cheese with pepper, olive oil and oregano and is a must have if you're into hot stretchy melted cheese. As an entree the Parillada Buenos Aires is the best way to get a taste of everything. It includes a mixed grill of short ribs, skirt steak, sausage, blood sausage, sweetbreads and veal kidneys. The kidneys and sausage were over done but everything else was perfect. After dinner, the owner asked me if moving tables was possible since he had a large group to sit. I agreed as long as he bought me an espresso, he said he'd do better than that and send me over any dessert I wanted too. GREAT! I had the dulce de leche crepe. Over all this is a very good restaurant when feeling carnivorous. (website picture)
