Even though Gaucho is a chain covering most of London, Charlotte Street’s spiral staircase leads you down to a cowhide-covered slice of contemporary Argentina from where you can indulge in 35 day wet-aged cuts of beef you’ve never heard of but when you taste them for the first time, you’ll remember them forever.
The Lomo (fillet), Ancho (rib-eye), Cuadril (rump) and Chorizo (sirloin) are staples. You can also enjoy, amongst other delights, spiral-cut Lomo steak marinated in garlic, parsley and olive oil; the Entraña Fina, marbled skirt steak in a delicious marinade and a three-cut tasting plate as well as steaks for sharing including the 1.2kg Beef Sampler at a wallet-busting £99.
All the meat is sourced from cows reared in the Pampas, an area of the Argentine lowlands famous for its fertile soil. The usual sides are served with style and flavour and if you’re looking for steak served how it should be, Gaucho is the place for you.
