Argentines are known for their arrogance and red meat. At Patagonia, you get plenty of the latter without much of the former. Miami has a glut of Argentine meat factories/steak houses, and most are pricey. But this place in Coral Gables seems to dispense with presentation in favor of substance. Sure, there's no waiter service — you order at the counter — and there's little similarity between this eatery and other Gables fine-dining restaurants, but we view that as a positive. Patagonia has street cred to go along with its sidewalk seating and an enviable mastery of the famous gaucho parrilla (Argentine barbecue). A wide variety of meat cuts are available for dine-in or take-home, including entraña (skirt), vacio (flank), and bife de chorizo (sirloin). And don't forget the chorizo (sausage). Additionally, the shop boasts an extensive wine selection and a long pastry counter featuring masas finas, facturas, and other baked goods. Looking for a quick bite before you take in a show at the nearby Actors' Playhouse? Then order an empanada and sandwich de miga.

My two cents worth as one of the arrogant Argentines...Sorry, but Graziano's in Coral Gables is still #1 for me. Their empanadas are the best anywhere. They cook them to perfection. The pastry is golden and crispy on the outside but when you sink your teeth in its soft and moist. The delicious varieties of combinations (like pancetta with mozarella and prunes) will make you want to find some kind of excuse to buy every single one. The facturas melt in your mouth. And the variety of items in the market (other than the usual facturas, empanadas, and sanguchitos) is amazing!

Como argentino viviendo en Miami, me extraña que no hayan mencionado a Grazianos. Excelente calidad en todos los platos, sin mencionar que tienen un exquisito asado al asador, entre otros cortes.
