La Portena update

La Portena steakhouse, 37th Ave. and 75th Street, just expanded; they opened a second dining room on Friday. Ellen and I had dinner there Friday; about 3/4 of the seats were full, and I am happy to say the service and food had not suffered at all from the extra customers. Everything was served piping hot; the empanada was a delight as always; and my short ribs were an almost religious experience. We didn't order the french fries because last time I did, they were greasy and mushy; but we had cause to regret that when our neighbors were served fries that looked perfect. We'll be going back soon!
