Revolution No. 5: To mention one restaurant that make a good impression of our argentinean food.
Village is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Manhattan.
It’s truly a very cool area and it is nice to visit both day and nightime
because his charm is different (tip: begin the trip at dawn, by visiting Tompson Square Park – unbelievable experience).
The neighborhood is characterized as having tiny apartments,
affordable ethnic restaurants, and bars of all kinds. You
can find countless piercings and tattoos if you pay attention to the people
around. It’s full of alternative students, musicians, artists, homeless, punks etc – a true oasis where diversity reins.
This is where Ismael has opened his restaurant called Buenos Aires.
I must confess I’m pretty regular at this place and, to make this
blog entry, I’m just using my memory for having been there so many times.
The food is authentic and you’re eating a Argentinean steak as if you were in Buenos Aires.
Attention is super warm. In this place everyone makes you feel part of the family. You should not be surprised if the owner sits at your table and/or if the waiter talks to you as if you were a friend.
It is a place where everyone is kind and, although usually crowded, the service remains efficient and friendly.
The provoleta is sensational, rich empanadas, the parrilla is
very delicious, the dulce de leche pancake is very good, comparable to the Flan. Another pearl: the wine list is broad and covers prices for all budgets.
Its decor is classic. It has some pictures and argentinean details plus 24/7 Live Soccer (girls: if going with boyfriends/husbands/lovers, sit facing the TV. Otherwise, it will be as if you are eating by yourself !!!). I do not think, though, that those are the key to its success. I think that people return because they find authentic and good food at a reasonable price. The price per person is approximately 30 USD to 35 USD.
Last but not lest, In Buenos Aires kids are welcome. A rare commodity in Manhattan restaurants.
