When you're searching for creative Argentine tapas, look no further than the eclectic selection of dishes off the rambling menu at this longtime favorite. Don't miss the perfectly poached eggs with bacon and grilled cheese, served up in a cocktail glass for dipping, nor the perfectly smoked fresh fish. Formerly Freud & Fahler (the NC stands for Nueva Casa), they took over the space vacated by the much-lamented loss of La Cupertina, everyone's favorite empanada shop. By turns coffee and pastry shop and evening tapas bar, with a few solid main courses thrown in, as well as a selection of prix-fixe and tasting menu options, this is not the place you'll remember if you visited the old location. Best bet, a bottle of wine and a selection of tapas from the ever-changing menu.

Freud y Fahler is not only one of the best eating experiences in Buenos Aires, it is one of the best that I have had in a number of cities including New York. The atmosphere is simple and without pretension which helps clear the stage for the food. wow. Every detail of each plate is considered, artful and surprising. Mustard honey sorbet served with rabbit for an appetizer. Sweatbreads with soy, bok choy and ham. Spaghetti made from parmesan and served
with a poached egg, pepper sauce, bacon, greens and an herb butter. The spaghettis are incredible and always changing. Pork with two cuts each cooked in different ways. The wine is always consistent and the meats delicious. We always leave feeling like we just experienced something special and unique which makes me want to try everything on the menu. I wish I could eat here every week!!!
