When a restaurant gives you the opportunity to become immersed in another culture it’s a wonderful thing, and this is exactly the ethos of Argentina Grill, which hopes to show its diners the traditions of BBQ or ‘asado’ in Argentina. The website explains that the concept was inspired by the passionate, noisy atmosphere of South American carnivals and that the founders have long harboured a desire to introduce others to the customs and charming details of these events.
The ‘parrilla’ – which is a type of BBQ grill specific to Argentinian cuisine – is at the heart of the cooking here, accentuating the taste of meats, seafood and vegetables with a south American flair. On the grill, you can try the likes of Wagyu rib-eye steak, glazed ribs with mango dip and Argentinian grass-fed steak. Other main dishes give guests a chance to sample other traditional Argentinian favourites such as cordero con arroz (lamb shank with cheesy risotto), chicken a la parrilla (grilled chicken with tomato salsa) and a classic beef burger.
The drinks menu features an extensive wine list, beers, soft drinks and more, as well as some signature cocktails to sip as you enjoy the view. Try the Pisco Sour or smoky mezcal Negroni.
Argentina Grill welcomes larger bookings for celebrations and occasions and even offers special discounts for diners’ birthdays, as well as offering half price happy hours. Another selling point which might get you in the party mood, is that this restaurant is keen to introduce more live music to its evening sittings with an active events programme. Check online for upcoming dates, but throughout the week you can expect to see Latin American-inspired performances with talented singers and live band.
