Introducing Gaucho: A Wood-Fired Grill with Argentine Flavor

As a resident at the Cork Factory apartments in downtown Pittsburgh, PA, your dinner options are just about endless. Whether you’re calling in an order for pick-up, or taking a stroll down to the Strip District for a summer dinner al fresco, you may be overwhelmed by all the different cuisines and specialties at your disposal. We’re here to help, and this week we’re taking some time to rave about Gaucho, an Argentinian restaurant known for its delicious wood-fired meats, salads, and sandwiches.

Due to its high-demand, high-volume service, Gaucho operates a little differently from other restaurants. When you arrive, your party can take some time to look over the menu, and head to the counter to order. You’re then welcome to take your seat, either indoors in the dining room, or outside on the charming patio adorned with twinkling lights and greenery. While you await your meal, Gaucho welcomes beverages with a BYOB policy⁠—no corkage or bottle fees included. Because of its famous local reputation, the line at Gaucho can sometimes wind around the building outside, so be sure you have some time to spare or call ahead to check on the wait.

Let’s talk food. Gaucho is of course known for its wood-fired meats, particularly the sirloin steak, or the chicken served with quiquirimichi sauce, but they have plenty of options for veggie-lovers as well. Opt for grilled provolone cheese with fresh oregano, or grilled corn on the cob with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Check out their entire impressive menu here.

If you love Gaucho and want to bring the experience to your close friends and family, the restaurant offers a few options for private dining and catering. Below the main dining room lies The Bodega, Gaucho’s intimate sitting room that offers table seating for a party of up to 24. Ideal for milestone birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations, The Bodega allows you and your group to dine family style with the cuisine you’ve come to love. Their Asado service is equally if not more impressive, as they bring the fire to you with remote, wood-fired catering at the destination of your choice. This service is perfect for weddings, reunions, or fundraising events.
