Best place to take a date. Small, intimate, romantic. Live music, live guitars. Fantastic Argentinian steaks. Spluge and let the sommalier choose a bottle of wine for you. Valet parking. Best if you can spend a couple hours. Recommend reservations

If you love robust beef and savory chicken dishes with the service of a 5 star restaurant then you must must go to Carlito's Gardel. Everything from the appetizers to dessert are delicious.
