About
Sizzle and smoke define Asado Cucina Argentina, the South Sound's only Argentine-themed steakhouse and a staple restaurant of the trendy Sixth Avenue dining district. Heady smoke wafts from the display kitchen where chefs sear beef over a mesquite grill. Low lighting is moody by night, bright and beautiful by day because of the expansive garage doors that roll up in the summertime, spilling diners onto Sixth Avenue. A mural evokes pastoral Argentina. Metalwork and heavy doses of deep-hued wood create a rustic urban palette. Social by design, with a large chef's table straddling the display kitchen. Bench booth seating connects diners to neighbors, but without being overly intrusive. The word

Asado is your place for a special group event, a fun meet up for a cocktail or a date night. The food is consistently well done. The fabulous grille smell meets you at the door and follows you through unique appetizers and beautifully grilled meats.

Wonderful atmosphere. Good food. Met friends there with the kids in tow and it was great. Unique dishes full of flavor. The dessert was good as well. Not a very big place so a reservation is recommended.

Check out their menu on-line. I’m pretty sure you ask them to not serve or substitute anything that may have gluten. Lots of meat, poultry and veggie options

Hi Susan from Poulsbo Go check their menus on the website. Lunch is a great option for tasting many of the dishes, without paying the higher prices and it is just as lovely during the day. Good luck
