Gaucho Grill’s chefs set eager taste buds sizzling with a menu of Argentinean steaks, seafood, chicken, and pasta concocted from choice ingredients. The flame-kissed South American–influenced entrees include meaty meals such as the entraña a la parrilla ($19), a 10-ounce skirt steak juicily grilled to order. Seafaring dishes surface on tables in forms such as the salmon papillote ($19),a steamed salmon fillet on a bed of spinach and vegetables with a splash of white wine and olive oil. The spinach-and-cheese ravioli ($13; $17 with chicken) dons a pink-sauce dress for an exclusive belly soiree. The wine list features pairable whites and reds from boutique Argentinean labels, accenting meals more gracefully than a tableside swan tango.
In Gaucho Grill's kitchen, juicy steaks and marinated poultry sizzle on grills, sending the rich aroma of Argentine cuisine drifting through the restaurant's rustic interior. Savory mushrooms and veggies garnish meats on intimate lamp-lit tables surrounded by knotty timber walls, rough slate arches, and lariat-hurling ranchers. Dulcet treats of flan, mousse, and crepes cap South American feasts with notes of sweetness, and glasses of fruit-packed Argentine wines tastefully complement choice selections from the grill.
