I have posted about this Argentinian steak and seafood place before and it remains on my repeat list. In addition to the amazing array of dry aged and Wagyu beef, there is a heavy influence of Italian on the menu, I’m guessing because of the Italian immigration to Argentina. They offer many different types of milanesa and I was amused to see the milanesa a la napolitana on the menu, essentially a milanesa pizza: chicken or beef milanesa topped with tomato sauce, jamon and mozzerella.
Last night I had the “noquis” - potato gnocchi in three sauces from the pasta list: arrabiata, gorgonzola cream sauce & creamy pesto. I’m not a huge fan of gnocchi - the best I’ve ever had BTW is at Giacomo - but the sauces intrigued me. The two creamy sauces were very good, the arrabiata was delightfully spicy but over salted and I’m a salt hound, so that means it was really salty.
I started with the King Crab Claws with mini yucca arepa and it was AMAZING. Seven giant claws and that arepa made of one of my favorite things on earth. If you’ve ever had the normal sized crab claw appetizer at Churrasco’s it is very similar.
Every time I’ve been here, the diners are almost exclusively South Americans. Having lived there as a child, the flavors of South America are both nostalgic and comforting. It’s the real deal if you can stand the parking or lack of it. There is valet at night and the parking garage by the Studio Movie Grill is just across the boulevard from Sal & Pimienta.
