information about Don Gaucho Steakhouse
Vaad Hakashrus of Far Rockaway and the Five Towns
This was my first visit to the location since it was originally called The Living Room. I was happy to hear they changed the name and cuisine since now it has more of an identity and specific style. It's probably American Argentinian, and we're going to work with them in bringing more native dishes (Michael Barnatan, want to help with that?) but it's more then just a steakhouse. The Don Gaucho Mix Grill is a great sharing dish for some and maybe a main for others (not judging). We had some great items that Steve Ebbin and I really enjoyed.
The chef is Simon Azoulay and he comes with decades of experience. Manger is Tomer Swisa, one of the nicest guys around and he's really trying to establish this restaurant as a destination spot. The restaurant is spacious with 2 dining areas as well as a large bar in front (btw, do Jews really drink?) and a lounge area when you first come in. They have been busy lately and I want to remind everyone that they just opened a few weeks ago, so they are still in the soft opening phase. But I think if the locals support this place (which they should) and give them time, this will certainly be a viable option for a fine dining experience in the 5 Towns. Look out for their lunch menu, live music and other specials.
Here's what we dined on:
* Don Gaucho Mix Grill- Chorizo, Beef Short Ribs, Chicken, Lamb, Skirt Steaks, onion rings, sauteed onions, crispy onions, grilled tomatoes in a chimichurri sauce (and normally sweetbreads)
* Lamb Lollipop- Lime, Cilantro, Tahini and Zatar Pita Triangles
* Slow Cooked Short Rib Eggroll- Mushroom, BBQ Sauce and Ranch
* Bresaola (kosher version of prosciutto) with truffle oil on top
* Marquez- Saffron Couscous
* Chicken Empanada
[continued above, right]
* Pecan Pie with ice cream
* Brownie with ice cream
So what is a Don Gaucho?
Just as North America has its cowboys, wranglers and ranch hands handling cattle, sheep and riding at the Rodeo, Argentina has its own particular breed of men called “Gauchos”. Gauchos are regarded rather differently than their North American counterparts. Regarded by ranch owners (estancias are the Argentinian equivalent of the American ranch) with respect and reverence, Gauchos were, and to a degree still are referred to as “Don”.
brought family out for dinner to new place and had amazing dinner. we tried multiple appetizers and tried each others entree's and were extremely happy with all selections. service was great and atmosphere very laid back and enjoyed by all. owner Tomer was on site , friendly and embracing and very hands on. will defin come back for more and bring /recommend to all.
