Barra del Bosque
Barra del Bosque Review
When the Paseo del Bosque, La Plata's biggest green space, was designed in 1885, this diminutive stone building was the men's changing room for the now-defunct public pools. Two or three trim booths are squeezed into the cozy space, but the best seats are at the outdoor tables under the trees. The rabas a la provenzal (calamari rings sprinkled with garlic and parsley) come in deep white-china bowls, and the steak sandwiches are juicy and well stuffed. A blackboard displaying the daily main courses is tilted in your direction when you sit down. Dishes like glazed lomo (filet mignon) with wild mushroom sauce are a welcome addition to La Plata's more classic offerings. The Museo de Ciencias Naturales is a five-minute walk away.
