El Federal Review
An homage to the rugged terrain of the Argentine wilds, from the pampas to Patagonia, every surface in this downtown eatery seems to be rough wood or tanned leather. Chef Paula Comparatore turns out modern twists on classic regional dishes, often making use of rarely seen indigenous ingredients. Her tehuelches, a type of Patagonian empanada named after a near-extinct southern tribe are among the best empanadas in the city, and her classic slow braises of lamb, goat, and beef are simply divine. For those with something lighter in mind, there are indigenous fish preparations and even a vegetarian dish or two. A small offshoot of the restaurant is located in Puerto Madero, primarily for takeout and delivery to local offices.
