There’s No Crying in La Nueva Argentina

Posted by Maryanne Salvat On May - 18 - 2009

As a full-blown recessionista, I take pride in finding places to dine that are delicious and easy on the billfold. La Nueva Argentina is a hidden treasure on Sunset Drive and 102 avenue. Caddy corner to Sports Grill and Don Burrito, locals line up at the door and are greeted with friendly faces as they are seated in the extremely clean dining area, (something we should all be aware of since Dirty Dining has become a household phrase). The menu is quite extensive considering the size of the kitchen and the prices on the menu; the Churrasco was large enough to share generously, along with two sides. There is also a wide variety of wines and beer available. The restaurant has it’s own miniature supermarket/deli where authentic Argentinean products can be purchased and take away orders can be placed or picked up. Lunch menu also available.
