Best Authentic Argentine Restaurant in NYC: Great Steak & Parrilla!

Buenos Aires Restaurant is located in the heart of East Village and is definitely the BEST and REAL authentic Argentine restaurant in NYC. Everything at this place is delicious. You’ll find excellent steak, parrilla, their empanadas are the real Argentine ones, the Choripan is amazing and the desserts, OMG, so yummy!

The decor of this amazing Argentine restaurant is super cozy and great. You’ll get the typical Argentine vibes, with Argentine football decorations. I never get tired of this place and I always come back!

Hi there :) I'm Jess and I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magical and you have to be open to everything because you never know who is sitting next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the supermarket. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before coming to the city from someone who was living in NY! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
