Although opened in 2001, Social La Lechuza oozes the atmosphere of the best old-school neighborhood parrillas (steak joints). Opened by Pedro Marafuschi in the covered courtyard of a house that’s been in his family for 100 years (his 92-year-old mother can often be found readying food on the patio), the place has an improvised, grungy homeyness. Old men discussing fútbol and politics, Argentine hipsters on a budget, and the occasional expat dine on a mixture of homemade pastas, enormous and tender steaks, and sometimes soup, while being watched over by dozens of images of owls (or lechuzas, which give the Social its name) and photos of local rock stars who’ve visited.

 

Insider Tip: If you’re feeling adventurous, try the pickled cow’s tongue (lengua) or lamb hock (patitas) appetizers.
