I will be In Buenos Aires at the end of a hiking/running trip through Patagonia over Christmas and New Years. I love steak and am anxiously reading about the local beef. I want to go to the "best Place". Many recommend Cabana Las Lilas.
We will be with a group so I can get away one or max two times. RR
I am Argentine, I would not dream of going to Cabana Las Lilas. It is definitely touristy and ridiculously overpriced. I think they charge over 20 pesos for a chorizo, which is unheard of. You can get good meat in Buenos Aires at many places, no need to go there. To add to everyone's list I recommend 2 places. "El Pobre Luis" in Belgrano, a great Uruguayan parrilla decorated with soccer jerseys. And my favorite is "Las Talas del Entrerriano", a very different type of parrilla. It is difficult to get to, out of the way in a sketchy part of the suburbs, kind of dirty and with 0 ambiance. But the meat is absolutely amazing, try the "lechon" if you go. Very cheap and no tourists.

this sounds to good to pass up
Just got back from BA this weekend. Our meal at La Brigada was outstanding. The wine service was top knotch professional. The best of our entire trip to Chile and BA. The ojo de Bif was the best steak ever cut with a spoon before serving. We ended the meal with a warm whiskey sabayon. Wow. So don't pass it up.
