La Patagonia Argentina

Discreetly tucked away in a Miami strip mall, La Patagonia Argentina offers great Argentine fare and top service at reasonable prices. Popular dishes include entraña ($15.95), a grilled skirt steak served with mixed greens; pollo Santa Cruz ($11.95), chicken stuffed with spinach in a creamy mozzarella sauce served with butter-herb potatoes; and ravioles de espinaca ($10.75), spinach and mushroom ravioli tossed in a Gorgonzola cream sauce. The restaurant treats customers well. Owners Hector Verdun and Carlos Castiglia, longtime friends from Argentina, often serve the food, which comes out quickly. The décor is classy and clean: Pictures of Argentina line the walls of an amber-colored room, where tables are laid out neatly. La Patagonia Argentina is a favorite among local businessmen, so reserve ahead for lunch.
