Bringing the gaucho tradition to La Boca, famed pampa chef Francis Mallman set up his grill at this renovated Italianate town house not far from the brightly painted houses and tango dances on Caminito. The menu, as meat-centric as any, is a three-course sampler (there’s no a la carte) centering on Argentine specialties like succulent roasted Patagonian lamb and ojo de bife, aka rib eye, with chimichurri, as well as soulful plays on empanadas and veggies. As is the menu, the wine list is quite pricey, offering up bottles from top Argentine bodegas.
