R40 is for meat lovers. That is, two lovers who really like to eat meat. Carnivores can have a pretty steamy date night in Long Island City at this Argentinian BBQ restaurant, which feels like a fancy getaway house upstate with woodsy candlelit interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a greenhouse-like back patio. A wine cellar, visible under a glass floor, adds to that fantasy. There's a $105 platter for two that gives you a lot of meat for your money—but that leaves little room to explore the other, non-grill sections of the menu. Instead, get individual plates of steak or pork chops, and order crab empanadas, fluffy focaccia, and seasonal vegetable dishes like zucchini carpaccio on the side.
