An oasis of elegance and grace in the heart of Recoleta, the Duhau Restaurante definitely shouldn't be overlooked because it's inside a chain hotel. While French cooking techniques may dominate in the kitchen, the ingredients are pure South America. Particularly favored by the chef are seafood and meats flown in from Patagonia. Standout dishes include butter-soft Angus tenderloin, crispy sweetbreads, and a decadent molten chocolate cake. If the weather is nice, grab a table on the terrace overlooking the courtyard gardens. Don't miss a pre- or post-dinner visit to the wine-and-cheese bar with a fantastic array of each, and then take an after-meal stroll through the hotel's underground art gallery.
