Eating a hearty steak makes a man more kingly than wearing a crown or banishing the dog to a small island in the South Atlantic. Get the royal treatment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Argentine-steakhouse fare at Floresta, an award-winning newcomer to the Sunnyside restaurant scene.
Floresta's menu is filled with meaty goodness and bounteous heaps of traditional Argentine soul food. Delve into dinner with a starter of chicken, beef, spinach, or ham-and-cheese empanadas ($3) before quickly flaming hunger with Floresta's specialty: grilled carnes. The distinctive blend of Spanish, Italian, and French influences that makes Argentine cuisine singularly southernly hemispherical is evident in the vacio bottom sirloin steak ($21) and the giant, beefy bife con lomo (porterhouse for two, $46) with a side of house-made chorizo ($6). During lunch, Floresta's award-winning skirt-steak salad ($12) takes the lead role while papas bravas (french fries, $4) perform a spicy monologue.
Floresta's contemporary atmosphere is visible through their glass façade, promising cushy booths to match plump cuts of steak and modern lighting to match everything that absorbs electromagnetic radiation. Grab today's Groupon and take a culinary journey to the center of the earth—and then go slightly further.
Seventy-six percent of Urbanspooners recommend Floresta, which was recently featured in The Sunnyside Post. In spite of a few mixed reviews about specific menu items, Yelpers enjoyed Floresta's savory selections and portion sizes; four Yelpers give the new restaurant an average of three stars:
- How can you not love this place…especially if you're a carnivore. The chef is a former butcher, so you've got multiple cuts of steak, along with pork chops, lamb chops, ribs, chicken, fish, etc. – Edward C., Yelp
- This place is amazing! Some of the best steak I've ever had - with extremely generous portions at a heckuva [sic] price. – C.M., Yelp
