Right off 79th Street along an often overlooked canal is Tigre, a quaint spot that’s inspired by the bistros often found in Buenos Aires. The leafy outdoor patio offers views of manatees happily floating by. Honing in on the Argentinian theme, the menu is heavy on meat offerings such as the 36-hour beef ribs, churrasco, and a beef and bone marrow burger — but there’s also plenty of seafood for those who aren’t carnivores.
