Local Dining Favorite
El Patio de Jesus Maria is a local favorite. It’s is named after the owner who opened the restaurant in Cordoba ten years ago and later moved it to Mendoza. It's a typical Argentine parrilla, which is a typical Mendocenean style of cooking meat over hot wood embers. Their authentic parrilla specialties include Bife de Chorizo (similar to a New York Strip), Costillitas de Ternera (veal ribs), Bife de Chorizo (sirloin / New York strip) and Pollo a la Espada con Panceta y Verduras (rotisserie chicken with pancetta and vegetables). Most parrilla dishes come with the traditional side of french fries with an egg on top. The beef his high-grade, the portions are large, and the prices are reasonable.
