Designed to take you back in time, the San Telmo Argentinean Steakhouse offers one of the best upscale dining experiences in Laredo.
The San Telmo Steakhouse was designed to take patrons into the heart of San Telmo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The steakhouse offers classic Argentinian elegance from floor to ceiling with its stunning furniture and glass lamps to its velvet textiles, ambient lighting, and romantic hues. That’s why San Telmo is praised as a fully-immersive dining experience.
Before we get to the rich San Telmo menu, the bar is an exquisite bohemian experience that offers some of the finest cocktails in the area. Mixing traditional Argentine flavors like yerba mate and dulce de leche, the mixologist has created a bar menu meant to delight the palate with tastes from around the world.
Once you’ve ordered your cocktail, you’ll be amazed by the San Telmo menu that offers everything from the land and sea to crisp salads and jaw-dropping desserts. But before you dive into your entrée, start your dining experience with one of the many appetizers like the Argentine Sausage, the Peruvian Ceviche, the Beef Tenderloin, or the San Telmo Shrimp. The chef is also known for whipping up delicious salads and creams like the San Telmo Salad, the Creole Salad, and the Divine Salad as well as Basil or the Asparagus Cream.
San Telmo is especially known for its entrees starting with the Chorizo Streak, a New York strip steak available in 12 or 16 ounces. The High Back ribeye steak and the 20-ounce grilled top sirloin are other options as is the Beef Tenderloin with Bacon, the Rib Steak, and the Beef Tenderloin Tartare. Other notable options include the Lamb Chops, Caprese Chicken, the Pastoril Chicken, and the Argentina Grill, which is a local favorite since it comes with tenderloin steak, chicken breast, short ribs, sausage, blood sausage, and sweet breads.
If you prefer seafood, San Telmo doesn’t disappoint with options like the Grilled Salmon or Grilled Octopus, Prawns, Halibut, Oysters Puerto Madero, or the delicious Fettuccini with Shrimp. A lighter menu is also available for lunch and features unique items like the Special Squid Sandwich, the Buenos Aires Salad, Fettuccini Alfredo with Octopus or Chicken, and Caprese Chicken. If you’re in the mood for a hamburger, be sure to try the Gaucha Burger, which is a steak-made beef patty with an over-medium fried egg, muenster cheese, house-made aioli, and traditional chimichurri!
