Early Report: Libertador, a Taste of Argentina in Brooklyn

Libertador brings Argentine-style grilled meats to Cobble Hill, and early word on Chowhound suggests it's the real thing. Open since December, this Brooklyn outpost of a restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side turns out a parrillada (mixed grill) that's bone-gnawingly good—at least as tasty as the one at hound favorite La Porteña in Queens, chiefofeating reports.

It's an ample serving of short rib, skirt steak, chorizo, and chicken, among other cuts, but unfortunately doesn't include authentic parrillada selections like chinchulines (intestine) or mollejas (sweetbreads). Morcilla (blood sausage, pictured) is moist and flavorful, and all the meats come with a lively chimichurri sauce. "Cozy atmosphere & hearty dining," chiefofeating sums up, "perfect for these frigid winter evenings."
