Buenos Aires Cafe Galleria
Owner and head chef Reina Morris brings her knowledge of Argentine cooking to vibrant life with the freshest organic ingredients Austin has to offer. The combinations are rich and satisfying without the excess fuss of most gourmet restaurants. Traditional Argentine empanadas and the famous lomito beef sandwiches share the menu with fusion food like spicy chipotle gnocchi, a flavor you just have to try to believe. The vibe of the restaurant is warm and lived-in, with soft lighting, cowhides and leather upholstery. The staff is friendly and knowledgable of the cuisine and the unfamiliar occupants of the wine list. Parking is easier at this location, but the location isn't as hip as the original on East 6th. Regardless, it's a great romantic date spot that you'll want to come to again and again because of the hearty food.
