Meat is the focus of the mostly Argentinean menu at this rustic restaurant with a back garden.- Google
People talk about avocado fries, ceviche de hamachi, grilled corn, braised short ribs and stuffed peppers

Bring a date, sit in the back garden (full of hidden statues, beautiful greenery and that tight nyc garden experience) and share one of their wonderful steaks served on a 5 inch tall tree slice. Traditional appetizers like the Choclo (grilled corn) and Ceviche de Hamachi are not to be overlooked either but the memory of the steak is what will stick in your mind and taste-buds for days afterwards.

Another local Williamsburg favorite of mine, they have really great steaks here but don't overlook the delicious appetizers and all Argentinian wine list. the Avocado fries are awesome and the ceviche is always worth ordering.

Sometimes absolutely devine, El Almacen is sadly inconsistent. The huge meat dish with all three meats can be heaven if it's executed correctly. The papardelle with oxtail ragu is also insanely good.

There are about a million types of steak available in NYC. The Argentinian steaks served at El Almacen happen to be in my top 3 (Peter Luger's and The Smith serve my two other favs). The food here has never disappointed, even when the service is slow and the wait is annoying. They don't take reservations (welcome to BK), but it's worth coming earlier for. I'd say it's a good date spot (great ambiance), except for the fact that your table is literally mere inches from your neighboring table (read: zero privacy). Ah, such is life in NYC - tune out the others, and dig into an awesome steak.

Rib eye could've been fattier and marbled vs much of the fat sitting on one edge. Also medium rare was not a rare as I normally like. The steak dish to get here seems to be the skirt steak. When the parents and their adult children next to us all order the same skirt steak dish, that tells u something. Plus, I could just tell it looked gooooood. Oyster special of day was awesome - lightly grilled and butter divine battered. Fries with rib eye were awesome - I never comment on fries but these were abnormally good. Hamachi ceviche good not spellbinding. All malbec wines were excellent. Cash only. They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more. Empanadas purty tasty.

Churros are delicious (caramel sauce better than chocolate)
