Ar­gen­tinian. 7/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyn­d­ham St., Cen­tral, 2321-8681. chicken skin ($88). A 16oz Chateaubriand ($598, serves two) was en­cased in a salt crust be­fore be­ing cooked, and then split open at the ta­ble, leav­ing be­hind a won­der­fully ten­der, juicy hunk of meat. Desserts re­ally had the wow fac­tor:

Dulce de leche ice cream wrapped in marsh­mal­low ($98) came with a small tray of char­coal that was set alight, so you could toast your marsh­mal­low over the flames. It was pure the­ater. Mean­while, a flan with goat’s cheese ($108) was a mix of sweet and salty that blew our minds.

MISS Due to its salt crust, the steak was un­avoid­ably a bit too salty— es­pe­cially when paired with the over­sea­soned fries proven­zal ($98). An heir­loom tomato salad was fla­vor­ful but frankly too small for $98.

BOT­TOM LINE With prime cuts of Ar­gen­tinian meat, su­perb ser­vice and sur­pris­ingly in­no­va­tive desserts, Buenos Aires Polo Club is one not to be missed. Open Mon-Fri noon-2:30pm, Sun-Thu 6-11pm, Fri-Sat 6pm-mid­night $$$$
