There’s never been a shortage of places to dine in Buenos Aires, but really memorable food experiences didn’t happen every day. Until now, that is. As we approach BA’s restaurant golden era, we can see that new and exciting spots are no longer the exception to the parrilla-pasta-pizza-Palermo rule.

November 2015 – ASTOR IS CLOSED, ANTICIPATED TO RE-OPEN IN SAN TELMO A wonderful welcome to the restaurant community, after just one visit I already knew Astor would become my top pick for best new spot in 2013 for the following reasons: creative cooking + great ingredients + interesting flavors + inviting atmosphere + classic porteño decor presented in a fresh way + buena […]

With your pungent fishy odors, uncomfortable bar stools, over-crowded narrow eating space and disorganized inattentive service, you always put that cherry on top of my already rewarding Buenos Aires Barrio Chino […]

Whether it’s a first date, last date, secret date, or a date where you are looking to get-it-onnnn, here are some suggestions for that perfect date spot no matter the situation.
Oviedo, Las Pizzaras, Primavera Trujillana. Spanish/Mediterranean-influenced seafood, inventive Argentine fare and Peruvian culinary wonders. These restaurants, all extremely different, don’t really have much in common except one thing: if you are looking for a great place to eat in Buenos Aires, and want a delicious meal, you can pretty much bet you’ll find it at one […]
