Wrought-iron lamps and fans hang from the high ceilings, and Delft tiles decorate the walls at this favorite spot of executives and politicians. Visiting dignitaries and local playmakers have been dining here since the turn of the 20th century. The feeling, as you might expect, is formal. The wine list is extensive, and the Europe-centric menu includes excellent steak, salmon with basil and red wine, and pheasant with foie gras.

The menu was original and the dishes were paired with excellent wines. Service was outstanding, friendly and attentive. I cannot wait to return to try a non-holiday meal.

Stopped here spontaneously for lunch while walking around the city. In the daylight basement of the Marriott, it has a separate entrance. Inside, it's a beautiful, old-world restaurant. A few fluorescent tubes of light mar the beauty, but just look the other way. The chef at the grill inside the room personally greets you, which is fun. The food was very good, but not great. It was virtually empty at 1 pm (right before BA lunches), but apparently
it does well. We found nothing else like it in BA, so for a trip back in time, a nice one, we'd recommend it.

Although expensive by Argentinean standards(when I say expensive we paid $85 for an excellent dinner with a great bottle of Malbec and 20% tip) Plaza Grill is an excellent restaurant. The food and service are superb. The restaurant is very elegant and has a very continental menu. I recommend it.
