The Hungry Nomad: Attention lovers of red meat and red wine... La Boca is calling. (Warehouse District, New Orleans)

November 2, 2010

Attention lovers of red meat and red wine... La Boca is calling. (Warehouse District, New Orleans)

My partner in crime took me to La Boca last night for my birthday. We have been trying to go to this wonderful, tiny and romantic restaurant for some time, however, every time we made an attempt it was too busy or fully booked. I recommend calling in advance to make reservations since this is a popular spot in New Orleans. The ambiance, meal and service were all fantastic.

You'll be greeted at the door by the friendly Orestes Rodriguez who will take you to one of the dimly lit tables in this small and cozy restaurant.  The menu is simple and authentic: they offer steaks and other Argentine specialities. We ordered the Provoleta (Grilled Argentine Cheese) for starters.... it was fantastic (not recommended for the calorie counters amongst us) the grilled cheese is drenched in olive oil and requires one to dip bread into the warm and soft cheese. It was paired with a glass of the Malbec. For our main dishes we ordered: Steaks. My partner ordered the hanger steak (centro de Entrana) and for myself the wonderfully delicious fillet marinated in garlic and lime juice. Don't forget to order the yummy garlic-drenched mouth watering fries. The steak is accompanied by house made chimichurri sauce (an Argentine specialty) and two other creations by the La Boca chefs. Our experience was really great and I really recommend those visiting New Orleans to step out of the french quarter and into the warehouse district to taste some of the specialities of this amazing Argentine delight.
