What You Can Expect

Closed-Door Restaurant in Buenos Aires: Dining Experience at Steaks by Luis

Private Closed-Door Dining Experience

Explore Buenos Aires' fondness for puertas cerradas (closed-door restaurants) during an evening at this private loft in Palermo Soho. Arrive at an address given to you upon booking to find an unmarked door. Ring the bell, give the name on your reservation, and the staff will buzz you in. Step into a modern loft and be seated with an intimate group of fellow travelers for your asado experience.

Meet your host, Chef Luis, and learn about asado, an important Argentine cultural tradition of eating barbecued meat, sipping wine and socializing with friends. Check out the parrilla, or grill, and hear about the carefully chosen ingredients and dishes from Chef Luis. Ask questions of your host or step onto the loft's deck to sip wine and admire the stunning views of Buenos Aires.

Start your meal with the traditional picada, a meat and cheese platter, before moving on to the salad course. Next, enjoy achudas, another type of grilled appetizer that typically includes chorizo. Cut into your juicy 12-ounce (350-gram) Argentine steak, cooked to your liking, with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. Save room for a decadent dessert. Each course is paired with Argentine wine like Mevi, Familio Blanco, Richardi Fazio Menegazzo and Carinae.

Menu:
  • Picada: salami, bread and cheese
  • Mixed salad
  • Achuras: sweetbreads, cheese, pork flank steak, blood sausage and chorizo
  • Steak and garlic mashed potatoes
  • Dessert (varies daily)

We absolutely loved our experience with Steaks by Luis. Everything was very organized, and we had a great dinner with other Americans and Europeans. The food specifically meat was some of the best I have ever had in my life. I highly recommend this experience. It is totally worth the money for something different in Buenos Aires!! It was one of my favorite things that we did in Argentina.

The best steaks in south america in a relaxing and beautiful apartment with great company.
We walked from our hotel in Palermo Soho and the area is safe at night.

Real good experience!
Be sure to come hungry as they serve you a lot of terrific food and wine.
Maybe should have started a little earlier as we didn't finish until 1 am.
Would definately do again and highly recommend to others!

We were treated like close friends the entire evening. Great place, staff, food, and wine. We enjoyed the company of our fellow guests from around the world. The staff even called a radio taxi at our request at the end of the evening. This is an experience not to be missed.
