La Esquina de Buenos Aires in downtown San José is run by an Argentine native who has decorated the restaurant's wood-paneled interior with historic prints and posters from his homeland. Needless to say, the menu is heavy on prime meats (churrasco steaks, chorizo, pork tenderloin), and there's a long list of malbec wines. A variety of pastas and seafood dishes such as camarones porteños (shrimp in creamy fish sauce) keep noncarnivores happy, too.—Christopher P. Baker
