FOOD | ARTS | COMMUNITY | STYLE+LEISURE Trout Provoletta region, served in a creamy creation of Roquefort cheese, mushroom and white wine sauce combination, you’ll know why they serve more trout than anyone in this part of the world. Magnificent. SAMPLE MENU ARGENTINEAN EMPANADAS – choice of beef, chicken or ham & cheese $7.50 GRILLED PROVOLETA – dry-aged Provolone cheese with tomatoes, prosciutto, oregano and olive oil $14 OUTSIDE SKIRT – 10 oz. all-natural silver farm beef tender outside skirt. USDA certified 100% premier black Angus steak $29 NEUQUEN GRILLED TROUT – 10 oz. grilled fresh Patagonia wild trout served on a bed of sautéed spinach with Roquefort cheese, mushrooms & white wine sauce $24 ARGENTINEAN MIXED GRILL MEAT PLATTER – Parrillada mixta Argentina: grilled combination of entrada, short ribs, chorizos, morcillas, salchicha parrillera, molleja and chicken $69 ARGENTINEAN PANQUEQUES – crepe with dulce de leche $8 Then there is the Argentinean Mixed Grill (Parrillada). Patagonia has several of these grill platters, some which can feed up to 6 or 8 people. You may want to fast for a day or two beforehand. And bring friends. Beef, sausages, short ribs and more, all spicy and grilled to perfection. Argentina at its finest. I think it’s important when you tackle something as robust as one of the Parrilladas, that you have an appropriate libation to help you. In this case, Sebastian recommended a lovely Malbec, one of a great many boutique wines in his cellar, most of which you won’t find at the corner grocery. For dessert I champion the Argentinean Panqueques, a crepe with dulce de leche that is otherworldly. It is fantastic. If you haven’t heard already, you will. Pretty much all of Patagonia’s business has come via word of mouth. This one is satisfied, to say the least.
