Buenos Aires Grill, Seattle, WA

S and I had a gift certificate to Buenos Aires, an Argentinian restaurant, so we decided to head there and check it out. Since moving to Seattle, it is rare that we have red meat, so we gazed over the menu and took our time deciding.

This is what we decided upon:

Manila Clams Sautéed and Tossed with Criolla Vinaigrette

We started with the pork and spinach empanadas, and they were excellent. Unfortunately, I didn’t capture a picture of them! Don’t worry, there was nothing special about them, aesthetically. We also had the manila clams, as shown above. They were a big disappointment. They were very chewy, and seafood tasting. The sauce was not very good, and did not compliment the clams. We were less than impressed, but in their defense, that’s not their specialty.

S decided to have the lamb for his main course, and he really enjoyed it. He really liked the sauce that accompanied his lamb, and he said the meat was really fresh.

I have the ribeye steak, and it was very tasty. The portion was huge, so I’ll be looking forward to steak and eggs tomorrow morning.

For our sides, we decided on creamed spinach and roasted vegetables. The creamed spinach was quite good, while the roasted vegetables were not so good. The spinach was tasty and creamy, while the roasted vegetables were bland and had too much sauce.

We opted out of dessert since our mains were so large. The desserts were pretty typical – New York style cheesecake, tiramisu, and crepes. They were tempting but my stomach was saying no.

The Damage

Total: $126.47 (with tax, no tip)

Rating: 3.5 (Satisfied)

Overall, our meal was hit or miss. The items that were good, were really good. The items that were bad, were really bad. I would give this place another try if someone invited me there, but it’s not on the top of my list.
