“Meat” the weekend.

Buenos Aires Grill
2000 2nd Ave
Seattle, WA 98121
(206) 441-7076

The food: We purposely didn’t eat any beef all week in anticipation of eating here. All I can say is, GLAD WE DID!! We had a platter called the “Parradilla”, which seemed to come with every type of meat on the menu, and a heaping plate of garlic fries. First, the meat was done to perfection, and had a wonderful smokey taste imparted by the wood fired grill, the fries were superb(be warned here you had better be a garlic fan, 😉 ). I keep thinking to myself, “I shouldn’t have had any of the bread..”, this was a lot of very tasty food, not for the faint of heart, or non-carnivorous folks. FYI, we left with enough left-overs for two more meals at home.

The service: Our waiter was good, he kept my water glass full(this is really my biggest pet peave when it doesn’t happen) and took care of us without “hovering”.

Ambiance: this restaurant has the type of atmosphere that could easily lend itself to a formal dinner, but still retains a very relaxed atmosphere.
Price point: Well the food isn’t the least expensive in the city, but for great dishes the price is much better than some other comparable spots(Ruth Chris, El Gaucho). I will say the bar’s happy hour is reasonable $4 for drinks(they make a very nice Mojito).
Miscellaneous: Again, parking can be a drag,surprise,surprise in downtown. One other quirky thing, the restaurant shares the building with the nearby Bourbon Bar, so the restrooms are also shared. Not a big deal, but don’t expect the restrooms to match the rest of the place. We have already decided that we will be going back, once we have worked off the last meal there.  One other thing, if you are going to any performance at the Moore Theater, this restaurant is literally a stones throw away.
