The twin stuffed cows that flank the entryway are a vivid foreshadowing of what's to come at La Cabaña. This luxury steakhouse has had an eventful recent past, including a seven-year hiatus in the 1990s, a lengthy stint under the control of Orient-Express Hotels, and most lately a wholesale move from its original Recoleta location to Puerto Madero, the citys renovated docklands. At the original Cabaña, which opened in 1935, you might have bumped into Errol Flynn, Sophia Loren, or Evita, though the resuscitated version attracts more corporate-card carriers and diplomats than movie stars. Still, all are captivated by the showy open parrilla manned by technicians in gaucho garb (including floppy pantaloons known as bombachas), walls covered with polo memorabilia, and an appropriately macho brown-leather menu brimming with options from bife de chorizo (similar to porterhouse) to asado de tira (beef ribs). Adventurous eaters will adore the assorted platter of entrails, which arrives sizzling with enough sweetbreads, kidneys, chorizos, and morcilla (blood sausage) to satisfy a table full of hungry carnivores. Don't forget to touch the cows' tails on your way out, for good luck.—Updated by Colin Barraclough

La Cabana was a best place to eat "bife de chorizo", nice decoration and traditional atmosfere. Today you many other places with good steak quality more
