Concierge.com's insider take:
With teardrop-shaped hams hanging from its ceiling, brusque uniformed waiters, and 150-watt dazzle, porteños, El Trapiche is a completely authentic B.A. dining experience. Its 22-page menu (perhaps the city's longest) reads like an epic of Argentine gastronomy: There's an endless assortment of grilled meats (including excellent rabbit and baby goat), pastas (such as the ever-popular ñoquis), and, a standout on a recent visit, Argentina's beloved breaded cutlets milanesas. The Southern Hemisphere cousin of Italy's cotoletta alla milanese, Austria's Wiener Schnitzel, and our own chicken-fried steak, the milanesas at Trapiche are bigger than the plates they come on. El Trapiche also has a nifty wine shop for patrons looking to continue the festivities.
Open Mondays through Thursdays noon to 4 pm and 8 pm to 2 am, Fridays and Saturdays noon to 4 pm and 8 pm to 2 am, Sundays noon to 5 pm.
