The highest quality of meat in Buenos Aires

khgjellestad | Jan 7, 2013 12:46 PM

Dear Board!

Based on this knowledgeable board and a lot of time reading Guia Oleo and blogs, I hope that I have produced a list that containes the restaurants where the meat offered is at the very highest level in Buenos Aires:

Gran Parrilla del Plata
Don Julio
La Cabreta
La Brigada
La Choza

Are there any of these restaurants that should be replaced?

Are there any parrillas missing from it?

Some on this board say that a place like Cabana Las Lilas is a tourist trap and should be avoided, and that the best parrillas are small ”secret” parrillas in different neighborhoods. Others say that Las Ilas is indeed touristic but all the same very, very good if not the best in all of Buenos Aires. Therefore I get a little confused.

In this question I am only trying to learn about the quality of the meat offered and not the side dishes, the service and so on.

My second question would be if the parrillas listed, or new names that the board ads to it, have special cuts that should not be missed? For instance if one of them offers the very best Bife de chorizo and another of them has a special edge on serving Vacio and so on?

Finaly my third question would be whether any of these parrillas have Achaval Ferrer on the wine list? And if not, is it possible to bring your own wine at restaurants like these for a corkage fee?

If you can help me with this I would be very grateful!

Thank you!
