Carlitos Gardel Argentine Steakhouse - Los Angeles
Located near West Hollywood, this Argentinian-inspired steakhouse is named in honor of the famed tango musician Carlos Gardel. He perished in a plane crash in 1935, but his name lives on in Carlitos Gardel Argentine Steakhouse. The menu elevates classic Argentine fare with premium ingredients and chef-designed presentations. Hongos, for example, are meaty mushroom caps stuffed with a forcemeat of chicken, breadcrumbs, vegetables and herbs in a red wine sauce. There is also a deep-fried squid appetizer accompanied by a zesty marinara sauce. And a signature is matambre de pollo, boned chicken that's rolled up around a filling of hardboiled eggs, ham and cheese, served sliced, with a classic creamy insalata russa on the side.Read More
Finally, all steaks and poultry dishes are served with sauteed vegetables and root vegetable puree mashed potatoes. That includes a 10-ounce prime sirloin, 14-ounce rib-eye and 16-ounce skirt steak. And meat lovers on date night might consider parrillada Argentina, for two. The sampling consists of the skirt steak, short ribs, veal shortbreads, blood sausage and chorizo.
There is also regular live music and special dining events.
