The East Village doesn't have its own steakhouse, but this parrilla will do. Sit in the tented rear patio at Buenos Aires and go right to the meats; rather than pastas or meal-size salads; for your main course.

Best starters: house-made chorizo and blood sausage, and the cold stuffed veal-breast roll called matambre ("kill hunger").
