Puerto La Boca

Venue Info

The seductive blending of Latin American and European influences that defines Buenos Aires style and cuisine also defines Puerto La Boca, a steak-heavy retreat for those wishing to sojourn just for an evening in the "Paris of South America." It's fitting that the popular spot among steak-lovers is in San Diego's Little Italy: Italian flavors are a pillar of BA dining, and the menu reflects as much with ricotta-basil ravioli, roquefort-spiked fettuccini, and cannelloni alongside empanadas, churrasco, and chimichurri toast. The parillada grill platter could feed many, with short rib, skirt steak, sirloin, chicken breast, and blood sausage char-grilled with pinches of salt. No meal here would be complete without a couple bottles of Mendoza Malbec, and the experience is better during the weekend live music.
