This traditional Argentinian spot in the East Village is about as close to the capital as you can get without leaving New York, and serves a wonderful mix of parrillada, pastas, langoustines, and salads, along with plenty of traditional empanadas. The special hand-cut, sizzling skirt steak empanada is a meal onto itself, whereas the Caprese is lighter, but still plenty buttery. If you’re looking for something a little creamier, go with the espinaca, filled with spinach, ricotta, and mozzarella. This is also a great spot to meet up with friends or a date - just make sure to get an extra order of empanadas.
