When it comes to Argentinian food, the taste is spicy and filled with vegetables and meat. Gaucho is THE place in the city to indulge in this delicacy.
I recommend going take-out because the sitting situation can be a bit daunting. There are no hosts to site you and you just hang out and hope for a table to open up. The servers then search for you to deliver your food. It can be a bit rough during the busy time and lots of people opt to just take out and head back to the office or if the weather is nice there is a small patio off to the side.
I ate the Rosemary Braised Beef Con Pan served on Ciabatta Bread. The Rosemary Braised Beef was a sammie with horseradish sauce and caramelized onions. It was very good with the roast beef being well seasoned and the sauce being the perfect amount.
We also had the Bife De Chorizo; a New York Strip Steak. All Vaca dishes are served with a small casa salad, toast, and chimmi. The steak was done perfectly and was seasoned with just the right amount of chimmi.
The atmosphere was nice once you found a seat away from the first floor where you ordered the food.
There is a secret thing about Gaucho that not to many know about: The Bodego. Nestled in the basement is the most fascinating event space. Among the white bricks are alcoves filled with chairs and mingle room. The long table seats about eighteen and is perfect for work functions, rehearsal dinners and small holiday parties. There is a flat screen TV for any work need and the menu can be preselected to fit your event need.
Overall, Gaucho was great food and interesting atmosphere and I recommend for a quick bite to take back to the break room to make the co-workers jealous.
