Buenos Aires Café
At the second location for this well-loved Argentine concept (the first is on the east side of town), classic dishes are served up with homestyle hospitality thanks to the leadership of chef-owner Reina Morris. Our two orders of empanadas arrived as warm pockets of lightly fried dough filled with spiced ground beef in one set and spinach and cheese in the other, along with an herbaceous and tangy chimichurri sauce. We loved tasting the European influence on Argentine culture with the Milanesa a la Napolitana, a thin beef cutler breaded and fried and served with a layer of baked ham and mozzarella cheese. Delicate herbed crepes, or canelones, were delicious with a spinach-mozzarella filling and a drizzle of salsa béchamel, but it was the grilled New York strip served with an ample helping of chimichurri and a side of crisp french fries that transported us to a churrascaría down in the Southern Hemisphere.
