Located in Newington, Los Argentinos, as you may have deduced, is an Argentinian steakhouse. The décor is simple and doesn’t scream South America but the emphasis is very much on the famed meaty fare popular in that part of the world. With that in mind, set your expectations accordingly as there’s little else on the menu, other than sirloin, ribeye, fillet or rump cooked to your liking. It’s all about the steak here. A pot of chimichurri sauce is a spicy concoction, placed on each table and recommended for all dishes. Surprisingly, the chorizos caseros starter is the standout dish on the menu, and the empanadas (traditional meat and corn pasties) are a close second. There are straight steaks or combination dishes which offer various cuts of steak with assorted sauces, all served with salad, fries or baked potatoes. Regulars flock back for the quality of the meat and the very attentive service.
