Azafrán Review

It's as much a gourmet grocery and wineshop as it is an incredible restaurant with tons of character—and one that offers a welcome break from parrilla fare. Shelves are stocked with local olive oils, dried herbs and spices, smoked meats, and olives and homemade jams. Eighty wineries are represented by more than 400 labels in the wine bar, where an old wine press has been converted into a tasting table. There is no wine list, but you can explore the wine room and look at the shelves of wine while working with a sommelier to find the perfect pairing for your food order. The food is super fresh, traditionally Argentine yet with creative flair, and gorgeously presented (try the empanada selection with the accompanying wine flight or the pork tenderloin cooked with blueberries in a Malbec sauce). This is a versatile place that works well whether you need to have a business meeting, dine with your family, or have a romantic dinner for two.
