Café Buenos Aires is a relaxed spot where Argentine Hugo Garcia lives his American dream. Born in Mendoza, Hugo has brought his charisma to the front of restaurants, and his love for food and know-how to the kitchens, here in New York for 30 years (Ever hear of Bistro Cassis?). Café Buenos Aires pays homage to Hugo’s homeland and the sexy, masculine eateries that dot that country’s capital. All the details are here, from leather-bound menus, to an elegant tiled floor that complements the rich, dark wood ambiance and a wine list that won’t quit. The cuisine bears a heavy Spanish influence (rather than the predictable Italian one) and flares of Hugo’s unique inventions. Exotic additions to the menu round out traditional steak, meat and seafood dishes common in South America, like Vacio Asado Gaucho Steak (steak with melted blue cheese and Malbec reduction) that loses nothing in translation. And almost everything is available in either tapas or full entrée portions. Romantic whether you’re there on a Friday or Saturday night to take in world famous tango dancer Nelson Avila and his wife Madalyn, or on a Tuesday to sip wine at the bar and watch a soccer game on the tele, Café Buenos Aires delivers an exotic experience that is nonetheless very accessible.
