El Gauchito is one of the oldest Argentinian meat markets/butchers and restaurants in New York. The empanadas at this Elmhurst classic are traditionally baked with savory chicken or grilled beef ($1.99 a piece), which you can also get delivered frozen and ready to bake so you’ll always be ready for an impromptu empanada party.
