“Top-quality steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Smallish neighbouhood steakhouse in the East Village. Busy but not manic on a monday night. Decor involves a lot of football scarves and photos. Our waiter was pure delight, friendly and helpful and attentive without ever getting on our nerves.
Our steaks - 12 oz ribeye and half skirt steak - were perfectly cooked as ordered. Fries were excellent, salad very pedestrian - just a bit of ordinary lettuce and some tomato.
I can't remember which wine we drank, but it was one of the cheapest and really smooth and drinkable.
We had a great evening here - for top-notch steaks at very un-eyewatering prices, this place is a must.

“noisy but delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a carnivores playground, if you don't want steak, go somewhere else.
We had the empanadas to start, which were perfect, both the pastry and the stuffing were delicious, but the chorizo was average.
My son's skirt steak was also perfect, he ordered medium rare and it was more on the rare side. The fries were good. I ordered salad (I'd had a big lunch) and the potato salad was creamy and good, the other salad was completely average. The steak portions are huge, we could have easily shared.
Service was smooth and good.
My only problem is that it was full and cheerful but very noisy. It was hard to hear my soft spoken friend.

“Argentine Beef At It's Finest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Another tip led us to the Buenos Aires on a very busy Friday nite. Obviously this place is no secret as the place was packed with the staff scurrying all over the place. They put a table together to accomodate us all followed by much bread and much wine for starters.
One of my friends was drinking the wine like he drinks his Heineken and who am I to say anything since he offered to pay for the entire meal for us all because he had just received a nice little bonus from work. We'll all drink to that although i like my wine chilled and not at room temp and ended up mixing my wine and diet coke which turned a few stomachs at the table.
Onto the main course which consisted of huge slabs of beef that really needed no accessories. Once again, i had leftovers and had it for lunch on sat. and it was even better then.
Out of the zillion restaurants to choose from in NYC me and the boys hit two good one in The Cottage at Irving Pl. and 16th St. and the Buenos Aires. We also got a free bottle of wine as the staff could plainly see we were going to be running up a sizeable tab. Thanks Pete... Luv Ya Man. you're the best...
