Food and drink

La Fusta features high quality steaks and seafood. You wouldn't know that for the price, but the owners pride themselves on serving high-end meat. The portions are huge. Eye-bulgingly huge. 

Recommended dishes

The menu is vast and includes pasta and chicken dishes. Don't be overwhelmed, however. Stick to the steaks and you can't go wrong. The best dishes include the grilled filet mignon and the special mixed grill. If you're adventurous, opt for the sweetbreads and blood sausage. Dishes come with mashed potatoes or French fries. 

Ambience

It's informal and bustling. The clientele is local and many Argentines head here. You can see full tables of families and friends sharing the large portions. 

Service

Service is matter of fact, like most steakhouses, but always with a smile. Don't ask for a burger, the staff will give you the look of death. 

Location

On a busy corner in Elmhurst, Queens. It's easily accessible by subway. 

Price advice

The portions are huge so you can even share a half serving and be filled. Dinner for two runs to about $40. 

Branches

The restaurant has a branch in nearby northern New Jersey (1110 Tonnelle Ave, North Bergen; 201-770-1950).
