At the corner of Grand and Union in Williamsburg is Café Argentino, which offers a mix of updated and classic Argentinian dishes. They currently have both indoor and outdoor dining, but try to get a seat inside to experience the vintage decor that feels straight out of an old Buenos Aires cafe. The empanadas are handmade and baked to order, and include queso (provolone with olive oil and oregano), pollo (slow-cooked, shredded chicken with peppers and onions), and the Malbec, a family recipe of tender braised beef. Empanadas come two per order for $8 and if you’re lucky, you might get to experience some live music or tango as well, which they do often.
