If there is a post-COVID mantra among New York restaurateurs it is “Let them eat steak.” Since the pandemic ended, the city has witnessed an explosion of red-meat emporia.

The latest, which is scheduled to debut tomorrow, is an Argentinian-style steakhouse named for Buenos Aires’s trendy Palermo district. Set in a three-story brownstone on Restaurant Row that was built in 1894, Palermo Argentinian Bistro revives the tradition of the mixed grill, or parrillada, familiar to those old enough to recall when West 46th Street was a Brazilian and Argentinian enclave. The version of this meat lover’s dream at Palermo, typically served to two, features several kinds of steak along with sweetbreads, blood sausage, and chicken.

You’ll also need a like-minded partner to qualify for the tomahawk steak for two, priced at $150.

Palermo Argentinian Bistro, 373 W. 46th Street, 212-265-2060.
