Airy and charming, this eatery's classic Argentine fare is consistently good. You can snack on cheeses, olives, prosciutto, salami, and eggplant "en escabeche" (pickled). The bife de chorizo (sirloin steak), meanwhile, is perfectly juicy, tender, and flavorful, all the more so when accompanied by wondrous french fries with basil. The country-store-meets-elegant-restaurant atmosphere is just right. No wonder locals and visiting porteños alike vie for tables—on
weekends, reservations are essential.
