Gaucho Grill Argentine Steakhouse is poised to become a household name in Southern California once again. Gaucho Grill’s value-conscious modern concept has consolidated ownership, contemporized the menu, updated the atmosphere, and is preparing for a major expansion with sights of taking on the biggest steakhouse names.
Partners Adrian Amosa and Kirk Cartozian are preparing to expand the updated concept’s recent openings in Downey (2016) and West Covina (2018), with a third location in Buena Park that broke ground in Fall 2019.
The menu boasts the bold flavor profiles of Argentine cuisine including the popular Entraña skirt steak, a never-to-disappoint classic. Also fired up are the Lamb & Chorizo Meatballs with tomato, garlic, Parmesan, and served with a charred baguette. The Mollejas grilled sweetbread served with chimichurri can only be found at a Latin steakhouse like Gaucho Grill. If you crave a slowly braised short rib with gaucho steak sauce marinade, the Asado Especial is for you. A first-rate Chilean Sea Bass is sautéed in a hot clay skillet with wine chimichurri and mussel broth. The Lomito sandwich with sliced tenderloin, butter lettuce, roasted tomato, provolone, fried egg, lemon aioli, and pistou is perhaps the most complicated dish on the menu.
Signature craft cocktails include the Mercado with vodka, lime juice, cucumber puree, simple, and a Tajin rim. Also popular are the Malbec Sour with bourbon, lemon, simple, a wine floater and the Sierra Norte with mezcal, lemon, pineapple and Aperol.
