For a single price with multiple drinks you can experience a great Sunday Brunch with variations like Venezuelan, Dominican, Colombian, in an atmosphere upscale and sleek modern, with attractive personnel in sleek decor. The bar is full and you can sit there or in the dining room which is ideal for group events. The dinner menu has incredible ceviche variations and unusual items like mofonguitos (plantains with chicharron and shrimp) or a fondue. Just an all-round pleasant experience.

El Gauchito

Since 1979, El Gauchito is the place where you can find a little piece of Argentine in New York. In a family atmosphere, you may share an Argentinian barbecue or taste authentic dishes from the Argentine cuisine. We offer an extensive menu, delicious dess

We ordered the meat plate for two (the one without sausage, only different cuts of meat). The portions were acceptable, we both left full. The meat was not spiced or minimally, so you need the chimicuri sauce to add some flavor. The bread was soft and the rice my child had was moist. We asked for our meat medium well, but a few were still undercooked. The lulo juice was good as well as the Russian salad (potatoes, peas, carrots).They do need to have had more options for single meals which include a vegetable. You could order cuts of meat, sausage, etc separately and a salad, but everything was individually. My wife and I ended up getting a shared plate of meat for two which included two sides since we each couldn't order a smaller meat portion for ourselves and one side.The service was kind of slow, and when they brought out our dish it was the wrong one, so we had to again wait for a new platter to be cooked.Strollers are not allowed.

La Fusta Restaurant and Steak House

Reviewed By vasile123

This Argentinian steak restaurant is situated in Queens, in a neighborhood so full of different flavors. We had been here years ago and I am glad it is still here. Order a small steak , it is pretty big. Medium cooked is best. The margaritas were enormous and the avocado salad with watercress and shrimp is very interesting. Our friends had the American mixed grill and said everything was cooked to perfection; we had steaks and they were amazing as well. The chimichurri sauce adds a different zing to it. The sides were nothing to write home about ( I would have preferred a baked potato) but hey! We came for the steaks. The atmosphere and the service are nice too, not noisy and the servers are prompt. Park in the hospital parking across the street, have your server stamp your ticket and the parking is free. Very convenient.

Los 3 Potrillos Restaurant & Bar #1

Reviewed By bg8friends

Needed something close to my hotel (Best Western) and this place caught me with the spicy pork they were fire roasting outside. Had three amazing tacos made with the spit-roasted spicy pork (Carne Enchilada), and a pair of great margaritas to wash them down. Nice bar with Univision sports channel and a huge assortment of tequilas for anyone who might like to sample one they'd never heard of.

El Chivito d'Oro

Reviewed By Pauline D

This was my first time eating here and I wasn't disappointed. I went with my sister and a friend. I had the Matambre with potato salad and tongue salad. The others had short ribs and skirt steak with salad and sweet plantains. All was fresh and delicious. The flan needs some work and the volume of the music was so loud that we had to ask for it to be lowered and they obliged. The service was good!

It is easy to over order here. We wanted to visit with our family so decided to get food to go rather than eat out. Since there were four of us we got the Matador Combo; the menu says the "most popular". We had drinks from home; nothing ordered from the restaurant.Well, the combo is enough for about eight people! Or four who don't care how much they weigh.It included a very juicy and flavorful whole chicken split; nicly spiced outside and juicy inside. A portion of yellow rice and red beans; the best part was the beans, the rice was not seasoned but definately yellow. Fried plantines; testones and sweet plantaines and salchipapa were also included. There was some avacado sauce and a viniger dressing for the side salad. They provided plenty of the sauce and dressing in small portion cups.We ate all we wanted the first night and had leftovers for a few days following. The chicken remained juicy and I used the fries in a hash I made. Pick up was quick and convienet. Check out was fast. I did leave a small tip with the takeout order.

The natural orange juice is delicious and so are the empanadas. They have a variety of flavors to choose from. The downside is that they are a bit pricy and had items listed in their menu which they did not have at the cafe. Other than that, it was a great experience.
