Another contender for best steakhouse in the city, La Brigada is a down-to-earth, family-run affair that also happens to be a must for all celebrities passing through town. A signature meal would include sweetbreads and innards for starters, then goat chitterlings and flank steaks, with some Italian sausage, blood sausage, and kidneys on the side. Remember you have to order vegetables and salads as well, or else you’ll end up with nothing but meat. The wine cellar shines the spotlight on Mendozan winery Catena Zapata, try the Angelica Zapata Malbec Alta. La Brigada's decor is rugged, unpretentious gaucho country style, making it more casual than its rivals, La Cabrera or Cabaña Las Lilas.
