Carlitos Gardel Restaurant

RESERVE A TABLE

Beverly Grove can be a tough neighborhood for date night simply because it’s filled with very popular restaurants that everybody’s been to a bunch. If you’re looking for something a bit different, head to Carlitos Gardel. The old-school Argentinian spot on Melrose has been around for years, yet still feels like a total secret. There’s a beautiful, fully-enclosed back patio with romantic, ambient lighting, a giant wine list filled with dozens of Argentinian reds, and a menu with no shortage of tremendously-cooked meat. You really can’t go wrong with any cut, but we’re partial to the prime ribeye, which comes in a fragrant, pungent chimichurri glaze. Whatever you do though, save room for dessert. The charming wait staff will present them on a giant tableside platter and you’ll have zero willpower to say no.
