San Telmo

After a cocktail next door, don't be surprised if you find yourself on the doorstep of San Telmo, succumbing to the enticing pull of the Argentinean grill. Inside, carnivores congregate around the Parilla (the imported Argentine charcoal grill, pronounced par-ee-sha) — feasting on slabs of tender, smokey charred meat. Order by cut: short ribs, flank, rib eye and all the steaks of rump are on offer here.

The menu is designed to share, which means that our vegetarian friends needn't miss out. The sweet-burnt carrots with thyme and goats cheese ($13), provolone, mozzarella, basil and capsicum empanadas ($6), or Brussels sprout, roasted shallots, hazelnuts and agave vinaigrette will appease the non-animal eaters, while desserts like the dulce de leche creme caramel with salted peanut praline ($14) will have both tribes fighting over the fork.
