We are regulars at Buenos Aires in the Galleria and absolutely love it, so we decided to try the one on 6th street for a graduation celebration. Huge mistake and disappointment. It started with a reservation that was made more than a month in advance...More

I love the environment and the location of this place. The food was ok. I did not like to much the empanadas and the chorizo sandwich was not good. Did not finished it completely. Maybe I had too high expectations as Latin and fan of...More
