Highly Commended Best Latin American 22 Comments
Wherever it opens its doors, Gaucho’s name precedes it – and for good reason. A smart restaurant that almost makes tasteful the use of cowhide in its interiors (no mean feat), the atmosphere, with its low lighting, is instantly inviting. The menu doesn’t wholly stick to the Argentinian theme, but steaks are referred to by their Spanish names, should patrons be looking to quibble. Suave waiters proffer chopping boards bearing an array of different steak options, expertly explaining their various merits and reeling off suggestions for accompanying beverages. A simple steak sharing platter between two is a sure-fire way to taste the best that Gaucho has to offer. In all, it’s hard not to be seduced by Gaucho’s aesthetic charms.
