Best Argentinean restaurant in South Florida 2017: Rincon Argentino


Rincon Argentino

2345 SW 37th Ave., Coral Gables; 305-444-2494;

Wanting to honor Pope Francis, a TV reporter once gave him empanadas from Rincon Argentino (Argentinean Corner). Today, banner text on the restaurant’s website trumpets his reaction: “Pope Francis enjoyed our empanadas.”

 Blocks away from Miracle Mile, this homey Coral Gables eatery, which opened in 1987, does Argentinean cuisine right. The menu is large, so you can feast on milanesas (breaded steaks), barbecue, pastas and, of course, empanadas so good they’re fit for a pope.
