Owner and head chef Reina Morris brings her knowledge of Argentine cooking vibrantly to 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 and rustic seating. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the cuisine and the unfamiliar occupants of the wine list.

Although parking can be tough on busy, hipster-filled East Sixth, it's possible to avoid the crowd if you get there early enough in the evening. A great romantic date spot that you'll want to come to again and again because of the hearty food.
