Confitería Torres Review
José Domingo Torres, a chef greatly in demand amongst the Chilean aristocracy of his day, decided in 1879 to set up shop in this storefront on the Alameda. It remains one of the city's most traditional dining rooms, with red-leather banquettes, mint-green tile floors, and huge chandeliers with tulip-shaped globes. The food, such as lomo al ajo arriego (sirloin sautéed with peppers and garlic), now comes from recipes by the mother of owner Claudio Soto Barría. This restaurant also has a branch for snacks and light meals in the Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda.
