Sizzle and smoke define Asado Cucina Argentina, the South Sound’s only Argentine-themed steakhouse and a staple restaurant of the trendy Sixth Avenue dining district.
Heady smoke wafts from the display kitchen where chefs sear beef over a mesquite grill. Low lighting is moody by night, bright and beautiful by day because of the expansive garage doors that roll up in the summertime, spilling diners onto Sixth Avenue. A mural evokes pastoral Argentina. Metalwork and heavy doses of deep-hued wood create a rustic urban palette.
Social by design, with a large chef’s table straddling the display kitchen. Bench booth seating connects diners to neighbors, but without being overly intrusive.
The word “asado” means a gathering of friends for a grill party – the Argentine equivalent of an American patio barbecue – and that theme translates into a convivial gathering spot for friends and family.
A steakhouse with a flavor-forward menu with preparations licked with smoke and sophistication.
