Beautifully decorated. Delicious empanadas and pisco sours.

I've never had Argentinean food before, so this was new to me. Me & my friend loved the empanadas, particularly, the chicken & potato ones. The other appetizers (Grilled Provolone & Blood Sausage) were tasty as well. His steak was delicious, tasty and juicy (and of healthy portion). I ordered the Milanesa (breaded & fried chicken cutlet). The portion was huge (two full breasts) but it could've used more salt, seasoning and/or condiment of some kind. I ended up dipping some of it into my friend's garlic/oil sauce (that came with his steak) to add some more flavor. I'm not sure whether the chef forgot to season my cutlets or whether that's how Argeninians eat it, though. Either way, next time I'll probably order the steak. We both ordered the fries with our meals and those were delicious and well-seasoned. Overall, I enjoyed the food and will definitely go back, if only for the empanadas, which were definitely the highlight. The staff seemed a little self-conscious, but were friendly just the same (the restaurant had only been open about 2 weeks when I visited). My only other observation is that the menu seemed a little sparse, but that's probably because it's predominantly a steakhouse.
