Voted Best Steakhouse by City’s Best readers in 2010, Buenos Aires Grill is a traditional Argentinean steakhouse with a wood-seared and mouth-watering menu and wine list. Fill both hands with traditional Argentinean empanadas ($8.50 for two) before filling both mouths with a remolacha salad stocked with roasted beets, peppery arugula, goat cheese, roasted almonds, and pomegranate vinaigrette ($7.50). First daters can find something in common by both ordering wild king salmon fillet ($29) or churrasco de lomo, which is stacked with butterflied beef tenderloin steaks, lightly pounded and grilled with chimichurri sauce ($25).
On Friday and Saturday evenings from 8 to 10 p.m., teeth can chomp into red roses during tango night, when there is a minimum consumption requirement of $30 per person at the table (children excluded). Tango is not a prerequisite to having an authentic experience at the restaurant; the traditional eats paired with the cool lighting and use of tables and chairs—both prevalent throughout Latin nations—help provide diners with a true Argentinean affair.
AOL City Guide voted Buenos Aires Grill Seattle's Best Steakhouse of 2010. The Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer reviewed the restaurant. It was rated 13 out of 20 on Gayot, has a 3.5-star average from Yelpers and Citysearchers, and is recommended by 80% of Urbanspooners.
- And let me tell you, the beef at B.A. Grill does, indeed, taste pretty darn glorious. – Penelope Corcoran, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
- Spicy chorizo links burst with juices. Char adds character to marinated skirt steak. Pleasantly chewy beef sweetbreads bear little textural resemblance and a stronger flavor than their veal counterparts typically sautéed to succulence at fussy bistros. – Nancy Leson, Seattle Times
Buenos Aires Grill
As the tango dancers that perform inside Buenos Aires Grill strut and twirl, they enact a wide range of dance influences—traditional polka, Cuban habanera, candombe rhythms from Africa—that reflect the same melting-pot culture that shaped the country’s food and, thus, the restaurant’s menu. Authentic asado—or grilled beef—cooks over a mesquite charcoal fire to ensure that fillets, rib eyes, skirt steaks, and porterhouses retain their natural juices. Chefs also stuff ravioli with ricotta cheese and crown angel-hair pasta with Pacific prawns, an option that most guests prefer to gnawing on a halo. Diners pair their entrees with pours from an extensive wine list that includes options from Argentina as well as France, Chile, Portugal, Spain, and California.
