In Buenos Aires, formerly no-frills parrillas
are getting stylishly decked out and serving premium chops typically set aside
for export.
Le Grill The Dish: The city's dry-aged steak pioneer
is known for its ojo de bife, or rib eye.
Each inch-thick portion is matured for 28 days and served with one of seven
potato sides, like decadent milhojas, a gratin with Reblochon cheese.
The Look: Fit for the power-lunch crowd, with glass walls, leather-backed
chairs, and a 3,500-bottle wine cellar.
The Neighborhood: A prime spot overlooking the Río de la Plata, in the
business hub of Puerto Madero.
Entrées $7–$18.
La Carnicería The Dish: Porteños are obsessed with the smoked asado de
tira (crosscut short ribs) at this 30-seat steak house, where grass-fed beef
comes from the owner's farm in the Pampas.
The Look: A rough-hewn aesthetic prevails, with butcher-block tables and six
bar seats facing a coal- fired grill.
The Neighborhood: Two blocks from Avenida Santa Fe, a main Palermo
thoroughfare that feeds into the botanical gardens.
2317 Thames; 54-11-2071-7199; entrées $17–$20.

The Dish: It's all about pigs—not cattle—here.
Go for the inventive pork-belly sandwich with peanut butter and carrot slaw on
house-made bread.
The Look: A chalkboard menu, place mats made from hand-stamped butcher paper,
and wildflowers on each table give off a rustic vibe.
The Neighborhood: Steps away from the outdoor flea market in San Telmo.
672 Piedras; 54-11- 4307-3661; entrées all $9.
UCO The Dish: Don't miss the house special, an 18-hour-roasted
Patagonian lamb shoulder for two served with seasonal vegetables.
The Look: Barnyard glam, with tufted leather banquettes and charcoal-colored,
wood-paneled walls.
The Neighborhood: Inside the Fierro hotel, it's smack in the middle of
restaurant-packed Palermo Hollywood.
Entrées $12–$13.
